For me, with the violin it's all about the tone. I like Grumiaux for the Bach violin stuff.
I would have recommended one of the following recordings ...
I have all these recordings ...
I would like to buy this CD (Marston CD Marcel Ciampi lagniappe) but but I couldn't find a site that sold it.
Does anyone know where to buy it?
Sorry, it can't be bought. It is a token of appreciation only given to piano recording subscribers at Marston Records.
Now enjoying the cello sonata recordings from the above box. The live performances are expressive and are recorded quite well.
I have the following box and will check out these piano trios ...
Thank you. Will I get the CD if I become a Preferred customer ?
That is my understanding. More info here: Marston Records | Preferred Customers
I suggest that you send them an email and ask: firstname.lastname@example.org
Found this in a used shop last week. Enjoying it now.
Is it the same as this one from Eurodisc...recorded and/or released in 1978? (That's the cover Qobuz offers.)
There's too "conversing" in the other group, so I'll stay here a while. I'm listening to Sonata No.29 from this excellent set.
*Too much "conversing"...
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6
Berlin Philharmonic label CD/SACD
This is the first official recording from the new conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. Kirill Petrenko. It was actually recorded in 2017 when the orchestra voted in favor of Petrenko. A very good recording.
There might be other recordings on the orchestra's download/streaming site. Wayne Garcia in Absolute Sound recommends this site, but I haven't joined yet. Too bad there doesn't seem to be a recording contract in the works.
A very fine violinist.
Excellent playing and sound.
I was sort of reeling imagining what the SACD was going to cost with that packaging, but it's only $20. I have a way to sample the hi-res, I'll give it a listen next time I'm in the mood to hear this symphony. If you have listened to it what did you think?
A powerful performance and well recorded.
I thought the SACD sound was very natural from the Berlin Philharmonic. It is not a spectacular sound here, maybe not as close up sounding as some engineers seem to like. But the sound is crankable. That is, I could turn it up without any ill effects that I could discern.
Another CD/SACD from conductor Kirill Petrenko was issued eleven years ago on Channel Classics.
Dejan Lazic, piano
Kirill Petrenko, conductor
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2; Moments Musicaaux, op. 16.
Channel Classics, 2008
A fine recording and I enjoyed Mr. Lazic's piano.
This morning I am playing a CD from the concertos section of the DG 120 box: Beethoven, piano concertos 1,3. Wiener Symphoniker, conducted by Carlo Maria Giulini. Featuring Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli on piano. These are live recordings of televised concerts. Excellent.
Thanks, I was more interested in what you thought of the performance I have only heard this conductor on some YouTube video streams.
