HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Nicolò Paganini – Violin Sonatas (Accardo/Dutoit)


After +5 years revisited, with the benefits of the Black Bird Gang and the AR SP15
This is a hard-to-find gem, in my collection for +40 years! Paganini the first million dollar musician; anyone who loves the violin as much as I do, should purchase this without hesitation. Accardo blows everyone away with these performances; his fingerboard is on fire. Accardo is one of the best today, if not the best. The range, tone, dynamics, and profoundness of his violin is only rivaled by a few of the greats. These performances are as the master, Paganini, would have played them.

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Nicoló Paganini – Violin Concerto No. 3 (Accardo/Dutoit)


The famous recordings of Paganini’s violin concerti by the great Italian violinist Salvatore Accardo and the LPO under Charles Dutoit has never left the catalogue, and no wonder. The performances are about the best around of music that’s apt to sound trivial in lesser hands, and the sound is excellent. There’s plenty of charm and real joy in music making in these performances, which present this music as music, not as virtuoso glitter.

HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Nicoló Paganini – Violin Concerto No. 6 (Accardo/Dutoit)


The entire DG Paganini Accardo – Dutoit/LSO is a winner in all regards. The analog sound has the most extraordinary bass capture. Tonally accurate, clear, robust, natural – no need to fret over a digital master. Accardo never fails to impress with violin virtuosity and fingering skill. Never a jerky bow change or under-phrased musical statements, always a shimmering tone, steady, rich, well-controlled. The technical demands Paganini wrote for the violinist of intonation and bowing techniques are handled with ease by the “old-school” classically trained Accardo. Dutoit and the London Phil in top form. This disc or the entire set or collected separately belong in anyone’s collection lacking these titles.

Super Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Foné) Il Cremonese Antonio Stradivari (Salvatore Accardo)

front-small-boxsetPlease welcome another  audiophile super-label: Fonè
I have read so much about the Italian super-label Fonè, so I thought, is time to hear the records, that so many HiFi lovers would never sell or give away. But I never expected it would be this hard to get the pearls that Signor Giulio Cesare Ricci (called Signoricci by the fans) produces, 100% analogue and very limited to 496 copies. Don’t ask me, why the hell 496 and not 500 😀  Finally I had luck and could get my hands on three of these black gold nuggets and….WOW ! My expectations weren’t disappointed.
Concerning this recording, I seldom heard the Stradivari as if it was played in my livingroom just for me. You can hear the violin breathing…
Audiophile factor: very high!

Accardo recorded the LvB Violin Concerto with Kurt Masur & Gewandhausorchester Leipzig in 1978 and with Carlo Maria Giulini & Philarmonic Orchestra of the Scala of Milan in 1992. OK, although both recordings are “state of the art” forget them both; this one is king or better, under audiophile aspects seen, the emperor!

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.
