This compilation of Kreisler pieces is absolutely wonderful, and while not “deep” music, it is great for relaxing later in the evening, helping one to unwind from the day. Perlman’s technique is excellent, warm and very sympathetic–rich with a lilting melancholy that’s inherent in much of the music. He makes it sound so easy, as effortless as if he could be humming the tunes. As for his accompanist, Sanders is a supportive but accomplished partner. I recommend this recording very highly. The playing is as full of insidious charm and romantic almost to the point of sentimentality, which in my view is not a bad thing at all.

I received as a gift, from a friend, lovefully restored files (not vinyl sourced, you will understand, why not)of recordings made by the greatest pianist ever lived: Sergei Rachmaninov. The recordings are from 1921-1942, in 24/88.2 and with stunning sound. Enjoy!

Please welcome another audiophile super-label: Fonè I have read so much about the Italian super-label Fonè, so I thought, is time to hear the records, that so many HiFi lovers would never sell or give away. But I never expected it would be this hard to get the pearls that Signor Giulio Cesare Ricci (called Signoricci by the fans) produces, 100% analogue and very limited to 496 copies. Don’t ask me, why the hell 496 and not 500 😀 Finally I had luck and could get my hands on three of these black gold nuggets and….WOW ! My expectations weren’t disappointed. Concerning this recording, I seldom heard the Stradivari as if it was played in my livingroom just for me. You can hear the violin breathing…
Audiophile factor: very high!
