HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Herbert von Karajan – Dances by Brahms & Dvorak

 front-small-boxset
Reposted – now with FF links
This is one of those recordings that should be in everyone’s music library. The Dvorak Slavonic Dances here are played with immaculate accuracy and beauty. It is a shame Karajan never recorded the complete works. The Hungarian Dances by Brahms are wonderfully performed. Karajan had a way of bringing out these minute melodic structures that simply “make” the music. The sound can be placed in the demonstration bracket and the performances themselves will not likely be out-matched anytime in the near future – truly classic performances deserving to be in every collector’s library.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Claude Debussy – Préludes Vol. 1 (Michelangeli)

Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Jean-Luc
I wish I could find adequate words to do justice to this recording but I doubt that anyone can. If you are familiar with the music, you probably already own this version. If not, you need to get yourself a copy. Words I could use would include masterful, elegant, brilliand and ultimately beautiful. Blissful! If you are someone unfamiliar with this music, this recording will win you over.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Johann Sebastian Bach – The Musical Offering (Richter)

front-small-boxsetReposted, now with FF links
This is priceless music-making. One can really feel that Richter is performing and conducting from his own heart and love for Bach, and all the while the orchestra is inspired to sing and to dance with him. The horns are laughing, the violins singing, and the listener is invited to experience flashes of happiness and joy with the chattering harpsichord.
When celestial music meets the summit of man’s creative and loving spark, we lucky amateurs are left with this kind of immortal recording: glorious!

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (DGG) Franz Schubert – Symphonies No. 5 & 6 (Maazel)

front-small-boxset
Almost a wonder to have found this 1st pressing in EX quality for 50 Cents on a flea market.

Rare repertoire from a major conductor in the early Sixties. Treading into prime Beecham territory, Maazel turns out to be terrific, full of energy and force but also delicate when called for, only lacking Beecham’s unique affability in this music. The Berliners play much better than Beecham’s post-war Royal Phil., however, I hear spontaneity and verve (admittedly, some movements, like the finale of the Fourth Sym., go at a breathless Presto). If Maazel had kept evolving, he would have replaced Guido Cantelli, whose propulsive neo-Tosanini style was close to this.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (DGG) Peter Tchaikowsky – Symphonic Works & Concertos on 7 LPs (Karajan)

front-small-boxset A wonderful box, original from 1968 in Mint condition, for 5 bucks from a flea market 😉 I myself have never been a huge fan of Karajan but these recordings of Tchaikovsky with the Berlin Philharmonic are breathtaking. Though there are tempo modifications made by Karajan to the score, they are certainly sensible make this performance all the more moving. Highly reccommended to Karajan and, particular, non-Karajan fans alike.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (DGG) Hector Berlioz – La Damnation De Faust (Ozawa)

front-small-boxset
As a lover of Berlioz’ music I have heard countless performances of this amazing work both live and on records. I think that on balance this is possibly the finest account on record to date. Firstly Ozawa is a great conductor and I find his conducting of Berlioz to be among the very best, every bit the equal of Sir Colin Davis, Charles Munch or Charles Dutoit, all experts in this field.
