Schoenberg: Gurre-Lieder
Schoenberg: Gurre-Lieder
Offered by Naxos Direct UK
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Caught some of Gurrelieder on the radio, not having heard it before. Totally smitten, and I think this was the right recording to buy, as it doesn't disappoint.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as expected, 17 Dec 2013

I actually ended up preferring the Naxos Gurrelieder to this one, as it seemed to hit the spot where this one left me wanting more.

What lovely performances. I'm already a committed Brucknerite, but these would convert anyone, I think. A great addition to my Bruckner collection.

My first smart phone, I love it to bits, but would just love to be able to delete all the apps it comes with that I don't want.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent trimmers, 17 Dec 2013

This review is from: Lister Legato Trimmers (Misc.)
Bought for occasional horse and cattle trimming. Last a long time on a charge and do a great job. Could even do my own no. 1 with these (but I won't!).


Wagner: Der Ring des Nibelungen (Decca Collectors Edition)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reviewed as the best by many, and what a bargain at this price. No more will I just listen to excerpts, as I have found so much more to amaze me from this CD set. A touch of audience noise at the very beginning, but otherwise perfect!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine performance, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berlioz: Requiem (Audio CD)
Radio 3 reviewed the latest Colin Davis release of this as the best, but I find it too echoing, as it was recorded in St Paul's I think. This CD set is excellent, and a worthwhile addition to my Berlioz recordings.


Tchaikovsky: 1812 Festival Overture, Op.49; Capriccio Italien / Beethoven: Wellington's Victory
Tchaikovsky: 1812 Festival Overture, Op.49; Capriccio Italien / Beethoven: Wellington's Victory
Offered by Fulfillment Express
Price: £9.39

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted a CD of this performance of the 1812 as it was my first ever vinyl EP in 1961. However, this is the 1958 recording and frankly the bells and cannons are not as good as they were on my old mono 1954 record. The bells on this CD cut off too abruptly, with no reverberation. Capriccio Italien is adequate. Wellington's Victory is very fine. Overall disappointing.

Does the job well. Why pay for the latest with its stupid licensing system and cloud storage when this is more than adequate...

Bought a laptop without a DVD drive - no wonder it was so slim! This works perfectly and is totally intuitive.
