Schumann: Das Paradies und die Peri, Requiem pur Mignon, Nachtlied
Schumann: Das Paradies und die Peri, Requiem pur Mignon, Nachtlied
Price: £24.34

5.0 out of 5 stars Schumann-Paradixe und die Pe, 14 Aug. 2017

This beautiful work despite its strange and fanciful libretto.is given an excellent and sensitive performance by all concerned and must be one of John Eliot Gardiner's bedt performances.The use of a period instrument orchestra gives us some idea of how it must have sounded to mid-nineteenth century audiences although I doubt whether the playing and singing couud be anything like as good..My only reservation is that I think the performers could be a little nearer the microphones

3.0 out of 5 stars Walton orchestral pieces, 14 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor recording technically throughout.Orchestral playing is however good.In the Concerto the soloist should have been given a more foreward position as playing often gets somewhat lost in the orchestral detail.Overall it seems as though this recording was made in a small hall as the soud lacks brilliance and even at times sounds stodgy.

This review is from: Visions (MP3 Download)
Whilst I hugely enjoyed this download musically I I was completely flumoxed by the lack of any information on the COMPOSERS! Why on earth is this important information not given?

Antoine Tamestit has a beautiful rvrn tone across allregisters and is thus able to do full justice to all these predominantly lyrical piecesHe has reserves of technique and 'fire' when needed.Listening to this recital one cannot but be surprised at the negect of this instuments calpabilities by so many well known composers.

Performances of both works are very good.and Vilde Frang is more than equal to the technical challenges.She seems to be completely inside the Korngold in particular and it is difficult to think a more sympathetic performance possible

5.0 out of 5 stars Kant:L A Complete introduction, 8 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good 'Teach yourself' introduction with questions to the reader at the end of each section to ensure that the reader.Key Points in the . has understood and retained the information given. Key points are high lighted at the end of each section..The historical and personal background is well filled in and this is not always the case with books of this kind on Kant.
