5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful find of a master in his prime, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who has the slightest appreciation or liking for cello playing. Even though this recording is in Mono the emotion that is obviously poured into the playing expands the music to an absorbing performance that I believe to be exceptional. I must say that I find solitary and exclusive (i.e. no other activity) listening emphasises the masterful solo performance - I have not found its better to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would recommend this book (or its updated equivalents) to anyone with an interest in classical music. The text gives information about the composers and the selected works that serve to illuminate and add to the enjoyment of listening to those pieces.
This informative book is a great starting point from which any interested party may progress to study chosen composers and their works.

4.0 out of 5 stars A realistic portrayal, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A realistic portrayal covering his early times in Paris and London pre 'fame'. The words paint pictures that are the sign of great observation and ability to express that on the page.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just get better & better, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Revival (Audio CD)
They just get better & better and this double cd reflects their energy as displayed live on stage with ACDC tour. The individual members all play their part to the full and even a 'famous' cover is a very fine rendition with feeling!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as The Very Best.........., 26 Mar 2013

This review is from: At His Very Best (Audio CD)
Not as good as The Very Best etc. and the choice of tracks are less representative, in my opinion, than those elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine summery of his works, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fine summery of his works and this older cd appears to have more energy and a better sound quality than more recent offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Onwards and upwards - a fine next cd, 26 Mar 2013

This review is from: Sparks -Digi- (Audio CD)
Some tracks are reminiscent of a relative. But there it ends as this has a current immediacy of a group of musicians who are really enjoying themselves and transmitting that to the listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sublime track, 26 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this track to download for ease of referral. Not quite as haunting as 'unaccompanied' versions but still quite breathtaking & there are another 5 similar to it!
