5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to what Klemperer does, 21 Sep 2011
This review is from: Wesendonck Lieder (Audio CD)
I only heard one track - the Wagner Tristan. Ludwig is truely out of this world and listen to what Klemperer does with Wagner's mellifluous orchestration.

1.0 out of 5 stars Class singers swallowed whole by bad engineering and poor conducting, 21 Sep 2011
The amazing 1st Act love duet, here sung by the two greatest Gotterdammerung singers of their generation, are totally and astoundingly eclipsed by the wonderful Vienna Philharmonic, the fault of the engineers who recorded the orchestra much too close. Solti should never have had his fickle hands on this, he didn't have a clue about Wagner.

A better job is done on the Bohm recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just beautiful, 15 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lugansky and Repin make a perfect duo. Lugansky is one of my favourite pianists of all time ( his Rachmaninov 3 is awesome ). This is a beautifully played recital.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best!, 9 Sep 2011
This is the best coffee I have ever tasted. Delicious black with a small amount of sugar. So fresh out the little packets.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this, 9 Sep 2011
This review is from: Unstoppable [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The plot is familiar, but there are enough twists and turns to make it interesting. Stunning on blu ray too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Tchaikovksy 5 !!, 4 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This dvd contains the finest Tchaikovky 5 I have ever heard. Abbado is inspired in this score and does things you'll never hear anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Rachmaninov., 27 July 2011
This is lean and mean Rachmaninov and its also perfect.

All the gristle you hear on the awful fat-clogging Previn/LSO version has been removed allowing one to wallow in the score without hating the piece afterwards.

I'd put this along with Andrew Litton's version at the very top.

Superb!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not echt Mahler, 23 July 2011
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No.2 (Audio CD)
The two soloists and choir are very poor indeed.

I'll keep going back to Bruno Walter for my ultimate Mahler 2 experience.

I took this book with me on holiday, and it was like having a second holiday!

I like the down to earth style.
