Super HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Joaquin Rodrigo – Concierto de Aranjuez y Andaluz (Pepe Romero/Los Romeros)

front_small_boxset
A century work – one of the best sounding productions ever !
This is without question the definitive recording of the Concierto de Aranjuez. Every classical records collection should contain this album. Pepe Romero has performed the perfect marriage between technical virtuosity and emotional interpretation. As well, the SMTF Orchestra matches Romero note-for-note making for a truly magical listening experience.

Farewell, Maestro Marriner. R.I.P. 🙁

HD-Vinyl 96/24 (Decca) Dvorak/Grieg – Serenade for Strings E-Dur/Holberg Suite (Marriner)


Reupped on request, now with FF links
Rivaled only by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Neville Marriner was one of the most important of the early figures who spearheaded the reawakening of modern interest in Baroque and early Classical music.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Argo) Antonio Vivaldi – The Four Seasons (Loveday/Marriner)

front-small-boxset
I have many versions of the Four Seasons, on CDs and vinyls around 20 different performances and the comparison to each other is always very interesting. I often wonder what Vivaldi would have thought of all the interpretations that are out there. I must confess, the Academy/Marriner recording is among the more authentic, at least, to my ear. The sound then, as now, was sparkling and clear. Marriner and violinist Alan Loveday recorded this in the best tradition, with modern instruments playing sprightly and spirited Vivaldi. This was before the gritty and hyper-energized recording by Giuliano Carmignola revolutionized everyone’s idea of what the Four Seasons should sound like. There are zillions of versions of this work and many of them are outstanding. But for clarity, unaffected brilliance and sheer elan, there is nothing like this recording.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Argo) Georg Friedrich Händel – Fireworks Music, Water Music (Marriner)

front-small-boxset
Thanks to our friend Lemarquis for this classic “must have”
Georg Friedrich Händel’s most famous instrumental works are presented here: his Music for the Royal Fireworks and his three suites of Water Music in F major, D major, and G major. A grand occasion celebrating a treaty is the backdrop for Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks. Grand stories surrounding the event exist, including a great traffic jam on the London Bridge, a 101 canon salute, and a fire which led to a swordfight. There were 100 musicians outside to play music including 12 trumpets and 16 french horns, and Handel was far from happy with the situation. In any case, the music is very stately, featuring trumpets, horns, and oboes in many guises, not to mention plenty of fanfares.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) J. C. Bach – Six Symphonies Op. 3

front-small-boxset
Finalmente, thanks to our friend Lemarquis I have this again and you can delete the old version in 44/16. Thank you very much, Mr. J. 😀
Johann Christian Bach (1735-1782) is more famously known as “the London Bach” because he spent the latter part of his career in that city. Nevertheless, his symphonies concertantes were composed for Parisian tastes. He wrote well over a dozen works in this genre, and possibly inspired Mozart to compose his more famous symphonies concertantes, one for violin and violin, and the other for four wind instruments. Only a few of them were publishing during Bach’s lifetime. Today, the manuscripts reside in London’s British Library.
