4.0 out of 5 stars Jennifer Pike, Tom Poster: Brahms and Schumann, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an unusual combination of pieces. All are played with sensitivity and understatement. In the lesser known Clara Schumann Romances Pike's playing shows emotion and great care to demonstrate the nuances of the work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday and Today, 22 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Yesterday And Today (Audio CD)
The recording is of great historical interest. But does not in my view compare well with the early UK recordings.

This is avery good compilation of all Cilla's great hits. We have a very good reminder of the power and drama of Cilla's voice. There are some great photographs as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brahms Piano Concertos, Stephen Hough, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are stunning performances of the perhaps neglected Brahms' concertos. The recording deserves to be heard by the widest possible public. The playing taken with the recording makes the whole effect superb- a true delight.

The recording is beautifully sung with great musicality and attention to detail. Sometimes the recording lacks definition and the sound is indistinct.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roberts Zoom Box 2, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good product. The controls are easy to use. The drawback is the very small information screen and lack of tone control.

This review is from: Dusk & Dawn (Audio CD)
The music is very well and safely played but the interpretations are somewhat bland. The record does not really sparkle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tchaikovsky Symphonies 1 to 3, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are wonderful interpretations by Gergiev and the LSO of the so-called Tchaikovsky minor symphonies. A new depth is brought out of the music and Symphony no 2 is particularly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent range of music, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a splendid collection of Joyce DiDonato's recordings. There are wonderful interpretations of Handel and Mozart together with popular pieces from Rodgers and Hammerstein. DiDonato is that rare singer these days a mezzo-soprano with a superb lower range. The recording quality enhances the fine singing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tumi Panama Hat, 31 July 2013

The hat is beautifully made and very comfortable to wear. The tube is robust and not too heavy. I have packed it on two occasions and the hat recovered well on opening.
