HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 8 – Solti

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to our friend Trottar for another gem
Mahler conducting has moved in a different direction from what we hear on this recording of the Seventh under Solti. Comparison with almost any other famous account — from Bernstein, Abbado, Boulez, or Tennstedt — reveals how extroverted and hyper-energized Solti is. The recording has been engineered for maximum detail, almost x-ray like, and any ambiguous or problematic aspects in the score are charged through, with forward momentum prevailing over anything else.

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (EMI) Carl Orff – Carmina Burana (Frühbeck De Burgos)

front_small_boxset
This copy seems to be a promotional one, because of a sticker on the rear cover, “telling” that this is “Manufacturers Property Not For Sale”.
This recording was made shortly after Frühbeck de Burgos had lead the piece in concert with the New Philharmonia. The performance, which he conducted from memory, was hailed as a breakthrough in nuanced yet sometimes barbaric intensity. The chorus and soloists gave Frühbeck de Burgos everything he asked for in this recording. I highly recommend this recording.
