Super HD-Vinyl 192/24 (Telarc) Carl Orff – Carmina Burana

front-small-boxset
Revisited with the Black Bird Gang – rip from Apr. 2016
In my opinion, the best sounding “Carmina” and one of the best interpretations. A great feast for your ears and your equipement.
Although this is (probably) a 16bit/44.1kHz digital production, the vinyl sounds worlds better that the CD…trust in me (cit.)

High-End HD-Vinyl 24/192 (EMI) Carl Orff – Carmina Burana (Previn)

front-small-boxset
Revisited with the whole Black Bird gang…new rip in 192k from March 2016
Being somewhat of a fanatic about Carmina Burana, I have had occasion to listen to several recordings of these songs…and I own around 10 different versions on vinyl and CDs.
This recording is, without a doubt, the best one there. From the opening of ‘O Fortuna’, where the silence speaks as eloquently as the crash of the music, through the solos of the sorpranos at the end, which makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, it is so clear and pure, the performance is superb.
