Mahler: Symphonie No. 3
Mahler: Symphonie No. 3
Price: £15.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Haitink Mahler 3, 28 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahler: Symphonie No. 3 (Audio CD)
A fine account of this great work. As one who has played for Haitink, the reading is strangely 'Teutonic' (for him)...the LSO Proms performance was a leaner affair. I don't think that it dislodges his earlier Concertgebouw recording despite beautiful playing from the Bavarians. I have just purchased a very great performance and recording by Ivan Fischer and would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a violinist one has heard many of these earlier performances but not having heard them for some time I could only marvel on relistening, at some of the breathtaking technical accomplishment and musical artistry that Menuhin achieves. Given the understandably variable recording quality this is the reason for a 4* review. Unmissable though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, 6 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A terrific read and one which surprises on many pages with writing which feels totally contemporary. The birth of the English Church and the questions asked of Pope Gregory by Augustine make fascinating reading for instance. If you want to understand this tract of English Church history this is compelling stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jean Martinon CSO RCA recordings, 2 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These recordings give a fascinating insight into a great orchestra in transition. Fritz Reiner moulded the group in his image and effectively "made" the famous Chicago sound. Jean Martinon cleans away some of the opulence providing the listener with cleaner, sparer textures and at the same time giving us readings of great musical insight. Martinon was a great but underrated conductor and these performances are testament to his art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Igor Levit Variations Album, 7 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing pianist and deep musicianship so why is the fifth star missing? Probably the best performance of the three is the completely illuminating Beethoven Diabelli variations... one could imagine the composer playing in this way. Igor Levit will play the Bach Goldberg variations differently in the future and will probably not be quite so in awe of the piece... surprising in a way because his other Bach recordings haven't shown these perceived characteristics. The Rzewski is a complete tour de force, fantastic piano playing which keeps your attention riveted... possibly a piece not really to warm to though?

Presently the greatest French-style flautist in the world and he doesn't disappoint in any way on these discs. Stylish and beautifully played performances throughout.

This review is from: UK Birds Sounds (App)
Good app and I suppose the only quibble would be that some of the recorded extracts of bird song are a little on the short side!

4.0 out of 5 stars Taken a little time to get used to but is a very good product and solidly put together, 18 Aug. 2015

Slightly smaller rebounding surface than I was expecting and certainly more bouncy than our last rebounder. Taken a little time to get used to but is a very good product and solidly put together.Recommended!
