5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent style, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst I'm not qualified musically to comment.
I have become immersed in "classical" music for the last 3 years or so, strings being a particular favourite
Szeryng was one of the greatest violinists ever.
His style was understated, but all the better for it.
He was a master at Bach
If you enjoy strings and/or JS Bach, then buy this, sit back and enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars A master of his craft, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was introduced to McCullins' work by a friend of mine a few years ago.
As it turns out, I had seen many of his images already
His work is iconic and real
He has the knack of being able to see the picture.
Be warned, this book has some disturbing scenes in it
However this is the reality of what is in the "real" world, away from the sanitised one everybody wants to believe in.
These are the images that show things how they are, when you take your head out of the sand
A masterpiece from one from one of the best


Richard Burton Reads Dylan Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have two Welsh giants here
The wonderful poetry of Dylan Thomas
and then you have them read by Richard Burton
One of the greatest "speaking" voices ever IMHO
A wonderful pairing, if you like either of them? then you must add it to your collection.
If you haven't heard of Thomas, then get it and prepare to be taken on a journey

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I choose this as it was a "freebie" for my Kindle
I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised
The concept was interesting
The book covers areas that I'm particularly interested in, Japanese history in the 1800's
The characters are well formed, and the story drags you into it
I can't wait for the second installment
A good read

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value for money, 6 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchased this set, on the recommendation of the "Talk Classical" forum
It's an absolute gem and fantastic value for money, mine worked out at 54pence per disc?
Thats not all.
The collection is a great journey from early French harpsichord to Beethoven
Great sound quality as well
Yes the writing is on the small side in the booklet, but, 54 p a disc, COME ON
You don't get bargains of this quality often.
My advice is buy it, you wont be dissapointed with the music

5.0 out of 5 stars Du Pre, 5 May 2012
If you like the cello, and it's greatest players?
Then this is for you
Get the technicalities out of the way.
The production is very good, the recording is excellent, the quality is fantastic
Now for the reality.
Du Pre.
Can she be surpassed ?
Clearly a very subjective point of view.
If she can then there are very few who can
If you appreciate the cello?
BUY THIS
You will not be dissapointed

5.0 out of 5 stars Berstein Stravinsky, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to both agree and dissagree with the previous comments
Its one of the best recordings of these arrangements I've come across
Yes, it is full of emotion!
BUT in my opinion, this doesn't detract from a superb rendition of a fantastic piece
Hopefully, you can tell I like this recording
Get it yourself and compare, Yes, it's different. However, I think it's great to feel a director's interpretation

4.0 out of 5 stars Water Music, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great re-master of a fantastic recording
It is a copy of, what is thought to be be, the music composed by Handel
A very good remake of an essential recording
If you are an afficianado of this style,it's a great addition to your collection
Especially if you can get it at this value?
