I will need to check this out! The Orpheus is a great ensemble.
The book sounds interesting.
i'm not sure the catalog by itself would be of much more use thah Wikipedia (which, I'm sure you noted, has links to articles on many of the works).
Had those on LP myself. Now I have Iona Brown's traversal with the ACMF on CD.
Heard the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields live back in the late 1980's…I remember that they did Mahler's arrangement of Schubert's "Death and the Maiden." It was sublime.
As I said the British press loved them. There are two two disc sets. Here is the Amazon link to the first.
Guess they deserve a second listen.
While Steinway does not quite hold the monopoly as in the past, it's still the primary choice. I'm starting to see more Fasoli pianos, too, and they sound excellent.
The same here and I have been a shareholder of Philips as well ...
I have the Telarc set, which is some of the best recordings the now defunct American label has made ...
Agree. This set is much better than the set recorded by the BPO with Karajan ...
I grabbed these SACD's when they were released a few years ago ...
Now listening to "Handel/Arne - Arias" performed by (the lovely and talented) Emma Kirkby with The Academy Of Ancient Music led by Christopher Hogwood on L'Oiseau-Lyre.
"Quite good" is a fair estimation.
For some reason they, the orchestra, like him. The proceedings on the stage seemed to confirm that. I already listened and deleted to whopping file. Don't believe I'm gonna buy this concert. But the tango was nice (except without the balls: too cute as a tango)!
I'm just sooo sorry I can't afford a tubed SACD player (that looks like taken from the weird Game of Thrones tv-series ): http://www.ta-hifi.de/index.php?id=297&L=1
Köchel's catalogue that begins with KV1:
Now listening to CD 1 from "Bach - The Organ Works" performed by Helmut Walcha on Archiv.
Toccata And Fugue In D Minor, BWV 565
Toccata (Prelude) and Fugue in F, BWV 540
Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538
Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C, BWV 564
Prelude (Fantasy) And Fugue In G Minor, BWV 542
I have the CD's for the VPO's New Year Concert conducted by Seiji Ozawa and Nikolaus Harnoncourt and a DVD by Herbert von Karajan ...
Is there such thing as a tubed SACD player? I do have a tubed CD player ...
I have this box and a box in mono as well by this great German organist ...
I've seen a lot of praise on this forum for ModWright's Oppo 105 mod. I am contemplating it.
Ok, question time: why is this a 2SACD set? The original cd is 75 minutes long (I still have it and am looking into upgrading to the SACD) so is this lenghth an issue with SACD in the sense that SACDs can't hold that much music in 3 discreet programs (cd stereo, SA stereo, SA Surround) ?:
May be the first time I've seen Szell and "romantic" used in the same sentence.
No need for two discs. I have any number of SACDs that include surround and run 75 minutes or more. I think I read somewhere that they can hold a little over 100 minutes (or over 4 hours of stereo only content - I have one of those). Of course the CD layer cannot, so you don't see discs like that very often.
Today I begin my vacation. Day One - trip to the best place on earth, Princeton Record Exchange!
