Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Modest Mussorgsky – Pictures At An Exhibition (Maazel)

front-small-boxset
A heartly “thank you” to our friend Mats for this gift
Ihmo this is one of the very very few performances (if not the only one) that comes very close to the millenium-recording by Fritz Reiner from 1958. Perfect in any way: tempi, coordination, dramatical atmosphere, sound. Don’t ask me why a digital production, presumably made with 16bit/44.1kHz technology, sounds ways better from vinyl than from CD. I don’t know. Try and believe.

Many thanks to our friend Bob for this gem

This strikingly-staged production of Puccini’s final opera, “Turandot” was filmed with the Vienna State Opera under the direction of Loren Maazal in 1983. Set on a spare stage with a single ascending staircase rising up to Turandot’s chambers, and with sumptuous, impressionistic costuming, the production allows…

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.

While Telarc does deliver great audiophile sound, The Cleavland Orchestra has deliver great Sound in Brass. This recording is conducted like a classical piece even though written in the romantic period.
