4.0 out of 5 stars Turkey here we come, 28 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Umm, this "review" is not mine but my wife's (the guide was a Christmas present). It's part of our planning for visiting Turkey in Sept '13. For the past few days she has been commenting ohh and/or ahh as she turns pages, or simply skims. The latest "intelligent" comment was "we won't have nearly enough time to see all the attractions". From me: as usual, stunning photos, fascinating commentary, and "I can't wait"

4.0 out of 5 stars educating children, 8 Jan. 2012
We've heard this recording just the once: when we sat round with our three year old grand-daughter. She was mesmerised with the association of Prokofiev's music to the various "characters". She took it home happily for her further musical education

4.0 out of 5 stars spain revisited, 8 Jan. 2012
We've heard a number of recordings of Boccherini's "spanish" music, especially these guitar quintets. Each has a special interpretation, some better than others, some more evocative than others. The question is what would Boccherini have thought? In the "hands" of Jordi Saval, the quintets come alive in a more traditional manner. Not disappointed

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning brass, 8 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Classic Christmas Brass (Audio CD)
We have had a cassette of this recording for many years and age and the sun "gobbled" it up. It's a stunning recording and has been reverberating round home since it arrived (even after 12th Night). We were certainly not disappointed at hearing it "fresh" again
