HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Nicolò Paganini – Violin Sonatas (Accardo/Dutoit)


After +5 years revisited, with the benefits of the Black Bird Gang and the AR SP15
This is a hard-to-find gem, in my collection for +40 years! Paganini the first million dollar musician; anyone who loves the violin as much as I do, should purchase this without hesitation. Accardo blows everyone away with these performances; his fingerboard is on fire. Accardo is one of the best today, if not the best. The range, tone, dynamics, and profoundness of his violin is only rivaled by a few of the greats. These performances are as the master, Paganini, would have played them.

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.

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 24/96 (DGG) H. Berlioz – Requiem (Munch)

front_small_boxset
Reposted, now with FF links
Charles Munch died in 1968, the year this Berlioz Requiem appeared. Munich is an unlikely place to look for Berlioz, but in several ways this remake is better than the original release with the BSO from 1960. Although only eight years separates the two, DG’s sound is considerably cleaner and more vivid than RCA’s.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (DGG) Antonin Dvorak – Stabat Mater (Kubelik)

front_small_boxset

Reposted, now with FF links
Dvorák’s solemnly lyrical setting of the Stabat Mater is one of the glories of 19th-century choral music, and this has always been regarded as one of its finest performances. Rafael Kubelík had few equals in this repertoire, and he knew just how to achieve the maximum of expression with a minimum of hesitation and dragging–critical in a work that is largely meditation and sorrowful reflection. A twofer price, this is the version to have. –David Hurwitz

Rare HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Frederik Chopin – Piano Concertos 1 & 2 (Vasary)

front_small_boxset1
Vasary`s 1964/5 performances of the Chopin piano concertos are extremely enjoyable pieces of music making. I rank them right up there with the top of the field, and the field of these concertos is quite packed indeed.
For the concerto in E minor, I prefer Vasary`s straight-forward approach: consistent tempi and a fine display of delicacy in the slower, second movement. He rarely demonstrates flashy feats of look-at-me “personal artistry” which pervades other performances, such as with Zimerman and the Polish Fest. Orch. on DG.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Claude Debussy – Images I / II – Children’s Corner (Michelangeli)

One of Michelangeli’s supreme recordings! The Images books sublimely wrought, a pianist of excruciating gifts with his mystifying inner world fully alive, and beautifully intimate sonics that are a model of restraint. What more can you ask for? Find me another recorded version of the Images to rival this one.
