Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Edward Grieg – Piano Concerto (Curzon)

front-small-boxset
Reposted with FF links
Curzon delivers one of his best ‘performances’ of Grieg’s Piano Concerto, with plenty of drive, a touch of aristocracy and a believably ‘live’ sounding aural experience on disc. He was notoriously difficult to please and refused publication of many of his otherwise good recordings. This one was not a problem and that is a guide as to its musical quality. It achieved ‘reference’ status almost immediately and has never slipped from that position in the 60 years since which is a remarkable achievement.

Ladies & Gentlemen, a salute to the great Sir Adrian Boult
Reposted, now with FF links
I’ve loved Holst’s “The Planets” for over 30 years, and there are lots of great recordings of it. However, this, Boult’s last word on the piece, is a stunner.

Particular & Rare HD-Vinyl 24/96 Mono (Everest) Ralph Vaughan Williams – Job, A Masque For Dancing (Boult)

front_small_boxset
Reposted, now with the new phono amp, the new cart and the new DAC…and in 24/96
I think we all know the story. God makes a bet with the Devil to test Job’s faith, and it isn’t at all clear who wins. What is perfectly clear is that Job loses–he gets thoroughly clobbered, though there’s a happy ending when his prosperity and serenity are restored. Vaughan Williams turned this rather depressing story into one of his very greatest works, a magnificent ballet that perfectly captures the personalities of the various protagonists. The music representing God and his foe, Satan, is especially well crafted, and the whole work has long been regarded as the composer’s orchestral masterpiece. –David Hurwitz
