Chopin: The Legendary 1965 Recording

5.0 out of 5 stars and it's not even lossless bit rate!, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
super programme - her playing of the Scherzo no.3 in C Sharp Minor alone pays for the purchase - at this price it's a must-have


Haec Dies: Byrd & the Tudor Revival

5.0 out of 5 stars super engineering, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
don't agree with all the chosen programme - BUT - what a fantastic disc - brilliant balance between the organ giving it some serious welly and a wonderful crystal clear and smooth choral sound in all parts of the choir - THE BEST recording of Britten's Hymn To The Virgin - thank you all - well worth the price

5.0 out of 5 stars brutally honest, 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
great playing and recording - interesting arrangements - absolutely nothing tender about the lyrics - be warned - you'll get butchered if you're a softie - great stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars right to the knuckle, 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
boy - gutsy realism beyond Dickens - a great reflection on real life situations which still exist (sadly) - Dexter's little brother lives in Steam-Punk

5.0 out of 5 stars fresh writing - to me that is, 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm really getting into this Steam-Punk stuff - if you like adventure and a bit of old style tech - you'll enjoy this

2.0 out of 5 stars if you have the old one - DON'T, 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Re-mastered - well - not well done - I have spent some time - side by side comparison - so - not worth the extra funds unless you specifically want the two new tracks - I say don't do it - Naim/Linn system

5.0 out of 5 stars I could murder the producer - but, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
picture quality superb - audio also superb for a live performance - but they don't always match up - and considering people buying this are probably piano players - what do we want to see? - the hands - mostly - quick zooming and cutting to the ceiling of the building is mindless - we do not find looking at the players hands boring - and not one look at the inner workings of the hammers - poor - thoughtless - unimaginative direction - still - great for this money

3.0 out of 5 stars let down by poor recording, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
wouldn't be my choice of vocal presentation for the Chants - I'd even go as far as saying that Barbra Streisand is better - I can hear the snobs gasp but I think I am at least honest about it - orchestra let down by the balancing and clarity of the sound engineering

3.0 out of 5 stars not Mustonen's finest hour, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted this cd because I have Mustonen playing the Bach and Shostakovich preludes and fugues - and he is unbelievable at those (everyone else sounds laboured in comparison) - but here he sounds as if he doesn't recognise whole phrases and he splits them up - it sounds disjointed - clipped - sad

3.0 out of 5 stars programme and packaging first class, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
However - the recordings are not all at the highest level of clarity - we've had cd's for about 30 years - the sound should be better
