5.0 out of 5 stars A noble Verdi requiem, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed this recording for practical reasons -I am learning the second tenor line. It is very fine as one would expect from Solti and artists of this calibre.

It is very adaptable and seems robust. Recommended for back sufferers. It seems very good quality despite the modest price.

Not being a Russian scholar I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the translation but this version seems satisfying in the way it conveys the "Russian-ness" of Doestoyevsky, the almost absurd verbosity of some of the characters which I take to be authentic for example. Certainly I am not put off by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood- the romantic opera by George Alexander Macfarren, 6 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macfarren: Robin Hood (Audio CD)
A fascinating piece of victoriana, and musically engaging. It is very well sung by the cast among whom George Hulbert as the Sherriff of Nottingham stands out. I hope the producers give us more of the same, some of Balfe's operas for example.

One of the greatest books for young and old ever written.Even those with "no teef!" like myself. Wonderfully illustrated, it is a profound and humanistic story from the author of "Riddley Walker".The Mouse and His Child (FF Childrens Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great recording of the Ruckert/Mahler songs., 8 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This recording should be in every serious music lover's collection. Both the orchestra under Barbirolli and the wonderful Janet Baker are at the height of their powers.
