Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Telarc) Holst/Händel/Bach (Fennell)

front-small-boxsetIt is rare these days to hear an ensemble sound as if they actually enjoy what they are playing. This album has that sound. There are technically better recordings, but none (that I have heard) with the “musicallity” that Fennell brings out. The horn “rip” in Suite in F positively has a grin on it! These are musicians, not instrumental technicians. Such a wonderful difference. And when Fennell “unchains” the big drum, oh boy, you better pray to have bought very good speakers and amps.
