Super HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Telarc) Ludwig van Beethoven – The 5 Piano Concerti (Serkin/Ozawa)


Dedicated to Trottar, Jean-Luc …and our friend Bob may he still be among us
Sometime life never helps you. Even, when you think, you have the Beethoven’s Concerti performed by the best pianists ever lived/living, such like Brendel, Pollini, Benedetti-Michelangeli, Kempff, Backhaus, Arrau, Katchen and others… and hardly you can admit another more in your private league, then it happens. And you think, how fool must I have been all the time, for not have discovered that treasure in time. So happened to me with Serkin.
Welcome, Signor Rodolfo!

Super HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Decca) Ludwig van Beethoven – The 5 Piano Concertos (Katchen/Gamba)


Revisited, with the benefit of the SP15 and in 24/192
Incredible find in a flea market, some years ago…for a few bucks!
 Decca recordings pressed by Mercury/Philips, almost NM!
The premature death of the genious US-American pianist (with Russian-Jewish origins) Julius Katchen in 1969 (due to leukaemia), at the age of 42 years, will never give an answer to the question about the best pianist of the last century. Anyway, he was one of the best!

Super Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (MFSL/Decca) L. van Beethoven – Symphony No. 9 (Solti)

front-small-boxset
Not the old rip but a new one, with the current engines and in 24/192
Thousand thanks to our friend Mats for this gem, that I once owned
Right from the opening, you know this one is going to be special. Solti definitely has listened to a lot of Furtwangler in preparation to confront Beethoven and his 9th Symphony. The tempos are broad in the opening movement and especially spacious in the adagio. Solti is not a questing, spiritual conductor like Wilhelm Furtwangler was and that’s most readily felt in the adagio where Solti’s communicate powers are not in the same league as that of the great german maestro.
