Many many thanks to
Mats for another rare gem of the swedish audiophile label BIS

Neeme Jarvi’s partnership with the Gothenburg orchestra is “a living legend in Nordic music” – Daily Telegraph (London). All the Sibelius masterpieces from a superb orchestra that he himself conducted. He has the measure of Sibelius’s northern sensibilities, but doesn’t overdo the bleakness; on the other hand, there is a forthrightness, even a toughness to his interpretations that well suit a composer who fairly early in his career turned rather decisively from lush romanticism to a more restrained neo-classicism.
Audiophile factor: VERY HIGH!

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Proprius) Johan Helmich Roman – 4 Flute Sonatas

front-small-boxsetMany many thanks to Mats for another rare audiophile swedish gem
In the 17th century the German-born Düben family played a key role in Swedish music life. Gustav (c1628-1690) put together a large collection of music from all over Europe. It is ironic that he did not include a single piece by a Swedish composer. The reason seems to have been that at that time there were no Swedish composers. In the first half of the 17th century German composers dominated the music scene, later French and Italian musicians played their part. Johan Helmich Roman, the composer of the sonatas which are the subject of the present disc, is the first composer of Swedish birth in history. He played a major role in the development of music life.

Audiophile factor: VERY HIGH!

The Sibelius concerto is one of the most difficult to play violin concertos ever written.
I think Heifetz is the only violinist who ever fully understood this score.
