5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy gauge pan with a non-stick coating that really works., 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed (after 6 months use). Heavy gauge pan with a non-stick coating that really works. I've always soaked the pan in warm soapy water right after use, and then hand-washed it. So far it's come up as new with little effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brahms 4th to cherish, 25 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Blomstedt proves to be an excellent interpreter of the 4th Symphony. Crucially he sets judicious tempi and then allows the musicians to play (gloriously) without unnecessary interference. So the music unfolds naturally, beautifully, and inexorably towards the last movement's great Passacaglia. The recording is warm, truthful, very beautiful, but needs to be played at a rather higher volume than usual, in order to produce proper impact. A very real pleasure - it is remarkable how under-rated this performance is, despite its very high credentials. I would compare it very favourably with Carlos Kleiber's justly famous DG performance, though the Blomstedt has greater humanity to my mind. The other works are very well done too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tape, easy to use, 6 Nov. 2015

Excellent tape, easy to use, strips off the roll more easily than cheap tapes, and the green colour helps identify boxes you've packed yourself (the removals people used brown tape). A bit pricey but works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've had a CD op this Blomstedt performance for many years & always it strikes me as an excellent interpretation recorded in tru, 22 Mar. 2015
One of the most enjoyable readings of "Alpensinfonie", excellently recorded. I've had a CD op this Blomstedt performance for many years & always it strikes me as an excellent interpretation recorded in truthful vivid Decca sound. I also enjoy the composer's own recording as reproduced on the Dutton CD re-release, but with a work where the sound of the orchestra is an integral part of its impact, I wouldn't wish to be without Blomstedt's fine recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent disk. I was fortunate to hear this performance ..., 21 Mar. 2015
An excellent disk. I was fortunate to hear this performance live at the Barbican. Rostropovich's Shostakovitch symphony recordings seem to attract somewhat mixed reviews in the musical press, but I found this thoroughly enjoyable as well as conveying the full force of the composer's writing. The recording is good, if a little dry and without the sense of being in the hall that some recordings manage to convey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but very enjoyable, 22 Feb. 2015
Not perfect, but very enjoyable.

I've owned this CD for many years & it was the first modern version which challenged my preference for Ferenc Fricsay's mono recording on DG and the two versions recorded on DG by Mravinsky. The recording given to Pletnev maybe blunts the impact of his performance somewhat, in that it's very musical but set at a distance from the orchestra. His reading seems to me to offer a fine interpretation of the score, with a strong emotional impact achieved without pulling the music about. Very enjoyable indeed, but not the only way to play the symphony.

Pack of 4 - Energy Saving 12w ES E27 CFL Spiral Light Bulbs - 2700K

3.0 out of 5 stars They are good value for money as long as you get them ..., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These bulbs are OK but a little fragile. They come in a blister-pack which as usual is quite hard to open. However 2 of the 4 we ordered turned out to be broken on opening the packs. The problem seems to be that the bulbs are able to rattle around inside the blister-pack during transit & 2 were broken just above the point where the fluorescent tubing enters the housing. The other two bulbs appear to be OK. They are good value for money as long as you get them undamaged. We'll be buying boxed Philips CFL bulbs in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent boxes, double-walled for better strength, 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent boxes, double-walled for better strength, easy to construct from flat-pack, and a very useful size. Not so big that they get too heavy for easy handling when full, but equally not too small to be useful when packing various types of possessions when moving. Very happy with our choice of these boxes & would certainly buy these again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good light bulbs, 19 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good light bulbs, 15w rating is roughly equivalent to the old 75 watt incandescant bulbs. Used in our hall lights, these give a good bright but not glaring light. They take a short while to come up to full output but the immediate illumination they provide is more than sufficient, so it's not a practical issue. Only the passage of time will reveal how long these bulbs will last, but I'd hope to get 2 or 3 years of normal use out of them.
