5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Budget Choice, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nielsen: Symphonies 1-6 (Audio CD)
I also have Blomstedts record with the San Francisco Orchestra, which is considerably more expensive complete. Hard to choice between the two otherwise, both sets are well recorded, though for obvious reasons, this one has a more scandanavian feel to it. This box also has a couple of fillers, which aren't easily available elsewhere and well worth having.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof, 4 April 2013

Described as waterproof, but they aren't. This is crucial for an all weather cyclist like me in wet Swansea. They also showed signs of fraying, after only a month, so wont last long

4.0 out of 5 stars Martinu Who?, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those not acquainted with Martinu, this is perfect and at budget price. Well recorded symphonies of a composer it is hard to categorize.

2.0 out of 5 stars The coffee has gone cold, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bach: Coffee Cantata (Audio CD)
A perfect, but sterile performance, no passion, no humour, and sounds as though it was recorded in someones bathroom. One gains the impression the soloists think this is a religious work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mendelssohn Overtures, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Overtures (Audio CD)
If you don't have all the overtures this is a very good budget option. Be aware that although well recorded at the time, this recording shows its age just a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bach With Humour, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I you don't like Fischer Dieskau you won't like this recording.
This recording is given the full romantic treatment, so you will hear a fuller string sound than some of the other recordings which offer Bach as he would have been performed in his lifetime. It's my personal preference simply because it treats the subject, in particular the coffe cantata with the light humerous touch that the words suggest, rather than the heavy handed rather serious, and in my view quite inappropriate solemnity of the others. In other words its fun, Bach had a sense of humour which is fully on show here. It's a good transfer from the vinyl which i previously owned too.
