Super HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Telarc) Ludwig van Beethoven – The 5 Piano Concerti (Serkin/Ozawa)


Dedicated to Trottar, Jean-Luc …and our friend Bob may he still be among us
Sometime life never helps you. Even, when you think, you have the Beethoven’s Concerti performed by the best pianists ever lived/living, such like Brendel, Pollini, Benedetti-Michelangeli, Kempff, Backhaus, Arrau, Katchen and others… and hardly you can admit another more in your private league, then it happens. And you think, how fool must I have been all the time, for not have discovered that treasure in time. So happened to me with Serkin.
Welcome, Signor Rodolfo!

Thank you very much to our friend Mats for this precious gift
Vivaldi’s spirit must have been with the symphony when they recorded this. I have about 20 versions of Vivaldi’s 4 seasons and this is one of the best overall performance/recording. For example. the tight driven strings that break into the lazy beginning of the Summer section are awe inspiring. I had never really paid that much attention to that part until I heard this. My hat”s off also to the recording artists as this record is not overly awash in waltzy-smaltzy concert hall reverb. It is dynamic and tight! File this under “one of the top ten” performances of the seasons.

I just read of Mr. Silvertein’s death, Nov. 21.2015
R.I.P. Maestro! 🙁

As a lover of Berlioz’ music I have heard countless performances of this amazing work both live and on records. I think that on balance this is possibly the finest account on record to date. Firstly Ozawa is a great conductor and I find his conducting of Berlioz to be among the very best, every bit the equal of Sir Colin Davis, Charles Munch or Charles Dutoit, all experts in this field.
