HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Volume 10 – EDIZIONE VIVALDI by Philips on 49 LPs

front_small_boxset10Box 10 with 8 LPs
This is a project I wanted to realize for my life and I started to buy the box-sets from all over the world. It took me around 3 years, because I wanted only Mint or NearMint box-sets. So 3 of them are Mint and never played, all the other are NM. The whole collection costed me almost 600 EUR…if you feel, you want to contribute to this Herakles-work, so you are welcome.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Philips) Ariel Ramirez – Misa Criolla/Navidad Nuestra (José Carreras)

front-small-boxset
This excellent album is something to treasure. If you ever buy only one CD with Jose Carreras, this one might just be the one!!!
Although this was recorded just before the treatment for leukemia started (I believe Carreras already knew about it), it was the perfect choice at that time. His voice retains it’s beautiful pureness throughout, which no one can match, and he doesn’t need to force his instrument. Listen to some of the phrasing, especially when he is singing pianissimo in the slow passages, it’s almost unbelievebly beautiful. The way he “speaks” the words and the depth of emotion, he is inside the music, inside the the words. That the composer was present (playing the piano) does of course add to the glorious result of these sacred pieces.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Philips) Franz Liszt – Piano Concerti No. 1 + 2 (Richter/Kondrashin)

front-small-boxset
A true Mercury-Recording, brought on 180g Virgin Vinyl to you by Speakers Corner from 2010
Since they were first issued, Sviatoslov Richter’s Liszt Piano Concerti have been widely admired as the finest performances available, and for most listeners they still are. Now they have been remastered by none other than Wilma Cozart Fine, Mercury Living Presence’s goddess of the sound console, and they have come up sounding better than ever. Even if you hate Liszt, hate concertos, hate pianos, hate Russians, hate music in general, you should own and treasure (or punish yourself regularly) with this recording. –David Hurwitz

# Composer: Franz Liszt
# Performer: Sviatoslav Richter
# Orchestra: London Symphony Orchestra
# Conductor: Kyril Kondrashin
# Vinyl (1961/2010)
# Number of Discs: 1

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Philips) Pjotr Tchaikowsky – The Nutcracker (Dorati)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Jean-Luc
Antal Dorati was probably the great dance conductor of our age, and he pioneered recording the complete Tchaikovsky ballets. He made an outstanding stereo Nutcracker for Mercury Living Presence. Fine as that version is, this one is even better because the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra simply plays the music more elegantly than the London Symphony Orchestra on the earlier recording. In fact, this has been the version of choice for a couple of decades now. –David Hurwitz

# Composer: Pjotr Tchaikowsky
# Orchestra: Concertogebouw-Orchestra Amsterdam
