HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Concertos KV 595 & KV 365 (Elena & Emil Gilels)

front-small-boxset
Thank you Jean-Luc for this great recordings
This is probably the best 27th I’ve heard, with the great Russian pianist Emil Gilels at the pinnacle of his career. Here (and in K 365) the Vienna Philharmonic, led brilliantly by Karl Böhm, provides rich, colorful, authoritative support. In K 365, Mozart’s Double Concerto, Elena Gilels, a very talented player in her own right, joins her father. A lovely, mood-shifting composition for 2 pianos–is a great way to accompain this magical 27th. These 1970s recordings were superbly engineered, and the digital transfers are warm and vibrant. There’s good balance between piano(s) and orchestra, and nice stereo separation of the two pianos.

HD-Vinyls (Mono)24/96 (EMI) Gustav Mahler – Kindertotenlieder (Ferrier)

front-small-boxsetAll thanks for these gems go to Tovarnik
Even before her tragic death at 41 (in 1953), Kathleen Ferrier became a legend for her incomparable voice, her simplicity and sincerity of expression, and her indomitable courage. This compilation of recordings originally made in the 1940s includes two beautifully sung Händel arias, two sacred songs by Maurice Greene, and delightful duets by Purcell and Mendelssohn (sung in English with another beloved English singer, Isobel Baillie), greatly enhanced by the inimitable pianist Gerald Moore. But the core of this recording is the Mahler cycle. Here, Ferrier’s voice takes on a new warmth and intensity; her deeply inward, direct expressiveness gives the bereaved parent’s grief and anguish a devastating impact. Her reading of the last song could be a bit more spooky, but the end is heartbreaking in its submissive resignation. The Vienna Philharmonic and Bruno Walter are in their native element. –Edith Eisler
