Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23
Price: 6.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 Op.23 -Van Cliburn, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on being reminded of it on radio 3.

Although I have several other versions I think this, conducted by Kyril Kondrashin is probably the Tchaikovsky classic masterpiece notwithstanding the age of the recording.
The coupling with the Schumann concerto is also a fine one.

Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Agnetha Fältskog-A, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A (Audio CD)
I was prompted to buy this CD following a recent TV programme.

It should appeal to any Abba fan (like me) and I was surprised at the quality of Agnetha's vocals given the lapse of time since Abba ended.
Don't expect a heavy disco beat as for the most part the songs are lyrical love songs, beautifully sung. I felt I got more out of the album the more times I listened and reckon that possibly only two songs could have been left out.

Good production

Recommended!


Space-time-matter (Dover Books on Physics)
Space-time-matter (Dover Books on Physics)
by Hermann Weyl
Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.11

5.0 out of 5 stars space-time matter, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book as an accompaniment to a Physics course covering the Einstein relativity theories.
As the book indicates "a degree of mathematical sophistication is presupposed".

This is rather an understatement, although the author does develop all the tensor calculus and affine geometry necessary.

An analysis of Euclidean and Riemann space is included leading to Einstein's general theory of relativity and theory of gravitation/gravitational waves-.with under 350 pages the author covers a huge range of concepts in pure physics

Unless you are prepared to master the advanced mathematics required this may not be the ideal book to with which to approach Einstein's theories.
That said, I felt drawn into the subject matter- notwithstanding my shortcomings in vector algebra and integral calculus.

These are excellent replacements for the usual 5x3 trailer(or similar).Just check wheel size.

Easily fixed in position and given their strong construction should give years of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digiflex Dongle, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to get one of these as I moved my old desktop PC to another room where it would have been difficult to connect to Ethernet wiring.
No problem. Just plug into a USB socket and follow the instructions.

The speed of connection does vary but is usually adequate to very good. This I found could be greatly improved by either moving the PC nearer to the router(not practical in my case) or using an extension cable to move the Dongle itself-I'll do the latter eventually.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars the bourne identity, 26 Mar 2014

Excellent quality DVD and probably the best of the Matt Damon Bourne trilogy.
If you are into car chases you are well catered for especially as the director's camera technique heightens the action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digitech Bad Monkey Overdrive, 26 Mar 2014

This one of the better overdrive pedals.

It enables you to retain the "dry" sound" whilst providing a fatter distortion, without becoming a cheap sounding fuzz box.

Good build quality and excellent value.

This review is from: Divertimenti (MP3 Download)
I became aware of the this great artist with his release of J.S. Bach:6 Cello Suites-(also highly recommended).
I was pleased to receive "Divertimenti" albeit as MP3 download(the only option) and really recommend this series of transcriptions for guitar.
The download includes a very entertaining concert of :Joseph Haydn-Duet for Barytons, Mozart-Divertimenti for three bassehorns and Haydn -Divertimenti for piano.
The guitar playing in very natural acoustic combines subtlety along with great power and the warm tone of the guitar does full justice to the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Panasonic DMC SZ1EB compact digital camera, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this owing to the loss of my previous Panasonic camera (DMCFS3) after several years of use.

It is a great compact camera and as with the DMCFS3 the lens is very good.The video (HD) is excellent and I welcome the feature of zooming whilst recording video.
The standard photos are excellent and with the zoom you have effectively a 200+mm lens-great for close ups.
The delivery from Picsio was next day-their service was excellent.

Bought for storing photo files.

Excellent in use and fast enough for my purposes.Fits well alongside other USB drives and I like the folding protective cover-although this is not dustproof.

Cool in use.

Software is provided for in respect of Secure Browser and password manager but I don't use these.(I might remove this facility at a later date to provide more capacity)
