Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This recording is very good, due not in the least to the excellent sound quality. The clear sound reproduction is particularly important for a work that incorporates such varied tonality. At the low price set, I found this to be a particularly good bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Messiah, 4 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this to be an excellent recording. The soloists, choir and orchestra were all to a high standard and I particularly enjoyed the singing of soprano Lynne Dawson, whose interpretation I found to be outstanding.

Price: £9.98

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mephisto Waltz, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mephisto Waltz [DVD] (DVD)
This is quite an intriguing film with an original plot, and I always find added interest when a piece of music is linked to a story albeit different from the original Liszt imagined. A devil worship film with a bit more class and an effective twist at the end.


Tannhäuser

Price: £6.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Tannhauser, 19 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tannhäuser (Audio CD)
There are pro's and cons in choosing this recording. The main problem is the sound quality particularly with respect to the limited high frequency response of the orchestra. However on the plus side the CDs were inexpensive and the principal singers were very good. The cast included a number of legendary Wagnerian singers and I was particularly impressed with Wolfgang Windgassen and Anja Silja.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exodus theme sung by Edith Piaf, 1 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exodus (MP3 Download)
I was delighted with the 'Exodus' theme sung in French by Edith Piaf. This beautiful theme is made all the more poignant by the excellent singing voice of Piaf. I used to own this version on vinyl record and it was a joy to obtain it again via download. One of the best songs I have ever heard the great Edith Piaf sing.

HANDMADE CHINESE CARVED JADE GEMSTONE Frog CARVING FIGURE FIGURINE MY2877

4.0 out of 5 stars A Suitable Ornament/Paper Weight, 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This makes an excellent paper weight resulting from its compact proportions and flat base. In addition, it represents a figure from Chinese mythology that's supposed to bring financial gain, hence the coin in the frog's mouth. It's approximately 6 cm high and 8 cm long.

Classical Art of Ballet (2pc) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Chloe
Price: £28.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A young person's guide to Classical Ballet, 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These dvds are aimed at the younger person who has aspirations of becoming a ballet dancer as opposed to someone who wishes to understand the terms and movements used in classical ballet. However, the steps are clearly explained and demonstrated for those with no prior knowledge.

4.0 out of 5 stars History brought to life, 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Up the Bodies (Paperback)
This Man Booker prise winning novel is an absorbing read which always maintains the reader's interest. For me its best feature is the way in which the author brings to life the main characters. This is particularly relevant to those who have an interest in Britain's History at the time of Anne Boleyn.


Verdi Requiem - EMI Masters
Verdi Requiem - EMI Masters
Price: £11.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent version of the Verdi Requiem, 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a marvellous version of the requiem on three counts: 1) The conductor's excellent interpretation of the work. 2) The outstanding performances given by the soloists and although there are no weak links here I would particularly praise the singing of Christa Ludwig and Nicolai Gedda. 3) The digital re-mastering by Abbey Road Studios has provided a very good quality of sound from the 1962-64 recordings. In fact, to me these dvds sound noticeably better than the original vinyl discs.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi: Otello (Audio CD)
I really enjoyed this recording of the opera and the sound engineers are to be congratulated on the fine job they on the audio quality, making it hard to believe that the recording dates from 1947. Not only are the soloists very good but Ramon Vinay as Otello is illustrated in that same part in Kobbe's famous opera guide. Finally we benefit from the inspired conducting of legendary Arturo Toscanini. What a bargain at the price!.
