there is not denying that this 13-CONJOINT CD of all a saint music written for Mozart is attacked the remarkable , varying he like this done of a F of entity Kyrie K33 that composes in 1766 in an age of only ten to a quite a lot of more famous Requiem of 1791, a year in date it. Registered among 1982 and 1998, is the testimony to one initiates of a manager, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and a joint of Austrian baroque music Concentus Musicus Wien. Three different register the venues have been used, but a sound has registered is uniformly excellent and notably has balanced well.

Ossia, for like this, the remarkable project and, besides, the subject enormous; I have bought a place number it in fact years and resupplied to treat adds to like. All concealed to prevent me to give a place the description of 5 stars is a inescapable done that some actions of some the majority of famous saint works…and notably a Requiem…is a less obliging in a together; his register his late plus of a Requiem with the wonderful quartet of soloists was very better.

Is some minors of known works that gives one the majority to like and is of one the majority of interest. A majority of some works have been written to fulfil some questions of some regular services in Salzburg, but a bit averts of these stands a Grabmusik, the special form of oratorio feigned to be treaty…but any staged…in church. This receives the particularly memorable action, with Sylvia McNair and Thomas Hampson like the wonderful pair of soloists. There are some stellar names among some soloists, comprising some sopranos Joan Rodgers, Charlotte Margiono, Eva Mei and Dorothea Röschmann, some tenors Kurt Equiluz, Uwe Heilmann and Christoph Prégardien and some basses Robert Holl, Giles Cachemaille, Laszlo Polgár, Franz-Josef Selig, Haken Hagegård and Alistair Miles. A bulk of some suns of big is taken for Harnoncourt daughter Elisabeth von Magnus, while a fresh tone, pure and refined phrasing of Barbara Bonney is gratefully listened in the number of some works.

A choral flange is in bylines and homogenous throughout; two hearts are involved, a Heart of Vienna has operated State and Arnold Schoenberg Corazón.

A liner the notes especially are in interesting: there is not any analysis of individual works, but there are fine tests for a manager and his brother his young plus Philipp, the Catholic and scholarly priest (“On listening and Comprehending Saint Music”).

This fascinating the collection is a lot the value that looks for era.

A big plus drawback of this neighbour is that one the majority of famous to do them saint of Mozart, specifically a Requiem (Harnoncourt is a lot unsavoury 1981 account is comprised here), the mass Adds, Mass of Coronation and Exsultate Jubilate, is not among a plus memorables registers of these never has involved works to disk. For a rest, there is a bit pocolos accionas very decent here of many of some known works smaller. Some soloists (comprising names like Bonney, Pregardien, Schäfer and to the) is a lot that satisfies and, thanks to use of instruments of period, the rhythms are animated and incisive if in timing the little abrasive. Note that in a K321 and K339 Vespers settings Harnoncourt intersperses movements with bits of vocal flange. While arguably truer to an action of real church, creates the stop-begins to feel which any one to the to everything can like him. Buy this together to discover Mozart operates sworn known smaller in of the animate actions. For some very famous laws one is spoilt for election with a number another available register elsewhere in a catalogue.

Maria Callus partorisca begin to finalise. His voice there is always lifted me and this collection has it everything.
5 / 5
Has had the plot of hype surrounding a king-mastering of some original tapes of some Registers of Callus of Studio. Personally I can not listen that a lot the difference among these and a EMI together. An only vocal bell is developed in all his glory in both. It is so only sad that a voice has been his early decrease so only at the same time registering the technicians are result more sophisticated. A reason: doing too much, too punctual and some of him was unsuitable repertoire for sound. Yes, a versatility is surprising, but callas has paid the very weighed prize to comprise like this varied the repertoire. This has said, there is something those interest in everything of his work, if it calms concern to listen, included in some registers some late plus. It is difficult to listen to other sopranos listened you once a callas interpretations, simply reasons leave such one individual impression in an auditor. It is such give it that Walter Law, producer of the majority of these registers, has taken like this of the few risks in choosing a repertoire. Boheme And Manon Lescaut was unnecessary considering has lost is gone in a EMI Traviata.

Has known callas' voice sinde was youngster the one 50.ºt. I have it quell'has done also documentary in his in a National Danish Emission. In it begins it any have to him legustado a sound of a voice, but suddenly ploughs on and has been of then a lot of fascinated. It is really wonderfull to listen some very known register in this sound has restored new. It is like the carpet is taken was, and a voice and an orchestra touches freesh and clear. THANKS TO Warner Records to do really well.

Has has wanted to really like this place. It is comprehensible, generally uses modern instruments and is a lot has registered. A snag is that it is like this dreadfully earnest. If you see Bach like the German church singer very serious then this neighbour will be ideal partorisca you. Snag Is that today it is better to see like father of seventeen boys those who there has been the sense of humour like evidenced for some of his secular cantatas. And it conceal no really found in this together. Partorisca See that I bad sample Edward Adwell interpretation of some Continuazioni French. Each note is there but look almost too scholarly in his approximation.
To be just some cantatas under Rilling is glorious
does not complain that it buys this box and I have like this far there is streaky so only a surface and listened to the little CDs, mainly some works of keyboard.
One another smaller complaint. It have been a lot if the details of some interpreters had been comprised in a tracklist booklet. I know that they are probably in a cd rom but a lot everything of us there is portable these days of pills

Another is described more than I to give detailed comments on action etc - but so only to remark for £47 (with surpassed free) for 172 CDs coverage Bach work under the good manager respected with the booklet of almost 300 pages that list some together clues the CD-ROM that gives the details the full plus is a subject incredible . I owe that admit that it is difficult to see like this to the amazon can be do a lot the profit is - but will seat now and enjoy some actions.

A Bachakademie-Edition, Stuttgart together with Hanssler has published this together of complete register of JS Bach a year 2000 (250 years after his life). It have purchased some character CDs of a place done several years, (the divísalos CDs was £16 or around full prize) but when this offer is exited to purchase a together integer less than £1 for CD I the snatched! Well, arrivals today, and can not taking listening! Some Cantatas are stellar! Has Glenn Gould registers, Helmut Walcha is, and the 75 Cantatas of Karl Richter and a lot another hundred CDs and registers of Bach. Has some amazing Bach registers, but am a lot that upper these! These are actions of glorious modern instrument , thank advantage. It say that they are exactly in a fashion of Karl Richter and a Bach Orchestra of Munich. This in spite of, technically continue where Karl Richter has to that the left was. Some registers are digital and better quality , reason are more recent. One touching is perhaps slightly lighter.. Some the orchestral accompaniments to some cantatas are glorious... staccato Is sprightly touched, sound of trumpets with clarity and purity, and a flange is undoubtedly World-wide Class. Energy and joy radiate of these actions. In short, does not see to like any Bach the defenders can resupply any to have Helmut Rilling near exceptional. Obviously, it say if you are the Actions of Historical Instrument, avert it. This in spite of, a tide is turning; finally we can listen Bach touched with a full profit of technology of modern day (both in a touching and register) in all his glory. Has the strong that feels that this fulfilling the investment will go down like this one of some compraventa better of my life.. Certainly I will be to listen his for a rest of my life. Along alive JS Bach! I can not recommend this dips strongly enough! It takes it and forget all more!

Some measures of boxes are 41 x 14,5 x 14,5 cm ( roughly 16' x 5'x5' ) . Hanged four kilos (roughly new pounds). In chance that a last information is any well for you...

A neighbour contains 172 cds and a cdrom with an equivalent to in the pages of thousand with texts of all the cantatas, liner notes and more. It is in German, English, French and Spanish. ( They say 5000 pages but that consider that this look of pages of a text repeated even in four different tongues then a correct information is to say in the pages of thousands of texts. Ossia That will have in English). A cd rom is compatible with PC and Mac. Have Mac And the looks concealed any all the contents of a cd rom is available for Mac but there is the pdf with all the texts for some songs and liner notes . There is has detailed indications in two booklets.

A box is good-looking and elegant. It opens for up and a cds is colour coded, distributed to the long of three distribution. It is very practical and is very easy to discover that it is looking for. A cds is in paper very simple the chances but I have not imported that, that considers that Hanssler is such the good, old fashioned focus that worries in his clients. The difference of Bach the complete works of one focuses giant Warner, which has zero documentation.

A quality of a sound is very good and, although it prefers instruments of period, I like a consistency of having this together where a byline of Helmuth Rilling is in the each one cd.

When I have listened cds of this together without the headphones does not touch it strong but birds in of the trees near of a start of open windows to sing when I touch Bach...
Has read once this beautiful poem where a poet , the American poet Of the sud has called Ferreira Gullar, said to the something the ' As His voice remember of the bird but no the flange of bird. His voice remember of the flight of bird'.

Go to use this idea to express like one feels to listen to a music of this together : Some sounds of music like the bird but not liking the flange of bird. It touches like the flight of bird.

Edition a lot well, all a Bach compositions in the very competitive prize. Singers very good and orchestra. It Was not any one another like this complete edition.

Klemperer craggy, granitic, The Dutch receives the 'facelift' and touches fantastic! This register will transport an auditor to a far peach, isolated village and a ghoulish goings-on with such force that a wrist quicken and each nerve, the sinew and the edge will stun and eaten by a work that unfolds! It is that well! Given an excellent presentation - courtesy of Warner - quality of the his improved and art that is as to any, he faith of beggars that of the neighbours receives the pair of negative critiques. I can not add a lot to the excellent description of Stewart Crowe, which says all this precise be said. Five stars, and recommended - strongly! A complete and utter subject in a current asking prize.

I better adds that a neighbour is presented in hardback formed of book - libretto comprised - with jacket of powder... And some disks are in the bosses have attached to a @back cover and inner @@front.

First first sew - hats down the Warner partorisca still like this other brilliants remastering, that is still in a footsteps of his glorious work in Giulini Gentleman Giovanni and Beecham Carmen. This version has not touched never more present and poignant.

Regarding an action is has divided always critical. Klemperer Is extremely the slow step tries one is patience in some parts but here the slowness does not mean lack of tension like this sometimes done with this manager. In a contrary - the one who Klemperer the builds here is a relentless and striking tragedy, with real, the suffering is human. These are essentially Theo Adam likes Dutch and Anja to to Silva like him to him the seats. Both do the work adds partorisca transmit an intensity of his characters, with the particularly involving duet. But while Adam compensates his relative lack of vocal weight with impressive heft and strong capacities to paint his voice with different shadows, maintenances, in spite of a lot of listenings, finding Silja voices also grating to resist. It is a actora vocal immense and embodies madness of Seats with absolute perfection of his a lot of before utterance - but this shrillness! This steel in a voice that transforms any big notes to the shriek..! It is absolutely the subject of flavour and again does not deny an art.. But for me it spoils a whole experience.

Regarding a rest - have the glorious Daland in Talvela - possibly some better one in a discography - but some tenors (Unger that seaman and mostly Kozub likes Erik) has failed to shine in my opinion especially when compared to to likes it of Windgassen or of same Sunday more recently. A heart is excellent - although no like this attacking like this to the equal that can listen of Bayreuth in a same period.

In general - the a lot respectable register, superbly has restored. The the suspect will remain divisive (and fascinating for that a lot of reason!) - And Knappertabusch or Sawallisch in Bayreuth, Gilded in studio (the together better of everything for me)... And included Karajan is and Sinopoli the defective versions remain personal favourites. But it gives this a test he - especially yes calms already the one of these versions. Calm can not fail to be has engaged at least!

There is at present a 2 description of Star of this fantastically presented neighbour, and in a principle left to advise that I disagree with each appearance of this description another that for remorse of mine has shared of the he in an A lot of studio ambience of EMI Studios of street of the Abbey.

A together has been registered on 2 month in several sessions in early 1968 and aprisa has released later that year.
A producer was Peter Andry of the that the formation dips with Victor Olof in Decca-and when Olof “deserted “ to EMI , Andry has done early the own. Andry Tarpaulin of entity with Decca has not been listened until but the few years - supervise a register of one 1955 Bayreuth Coverage in experimental stereo.
Register Wagner was therefore very new his, and follow a Decca (or Culshaw) philosophy to treat registers like the form of separate art, that uses a technology of a day to enhance a picture of his and not trying retorted the concert or action of house of the work.

For this a sound has registered is very detailed, very balanced in general but a bit a dimensional and airless. A new 24 has bitten/96khz remastering listened here for a first time gives more “headroom” to a aural the panorama and has not touched never as well as he here!
One touching of a “New “ “ “” Philharmonia is exceptional-rich brass, weighty and that serious of shines and full bodied woodwind.
Will be a little controversy here-I has found always a Philharmonia of Walter Law was to be a “anonymous” orchestra, especially under Karajan!-Technically glorious, of course but lack of personality.
Under Klemperer an orchestra has been transformed to the rich, the character that band of sounds. Material of this like this when being the result of Karajan a Magician conjuring sounds of an ether that arrives perfectly formed, while Klemperer hews the ones of metaphysical chunks of granite, piling on blockades of tonalities with architectural certainty until the a lot of the edifice is created. Of course a surface of granite is faced and defective until polished, the task which has not concerned Dr. Klemperer- Has to that move on to an edifice adds after while the time has had!
Left to dispel the few myths-this action is not unduly slow. Any time a flag of energy likes flow of advance of work with inexorable moment, and does not have the time is that it reads that it is not totally timely to Klemperer is a lot of conception of him!

Klemperer The forms “have had “with this work-a famous production in a Kroll the work where was Manager of Music with Max Reinhardt supervising production until both has been forced has gone by some Nazi has had some sailors like the crew of football, insiemi modern hard and has the portrait Seats like this basically psychotic. You are I triumph it and the scandal in equal measure!
Does not have any clue of the modern approximation in this READING this in spite of-ossia Wagner in a glorious fashion, with enormous orchestral weight and gloriously rich sonority.
Suggests that it calms will not listen never an approximation of a Hollander Phantom Glass so that the hair that has shouted like this in this version, assisted for Andry addition of thunder and howling wind (in a Decca way!).
Besides Klemperer uses a now to a large extent out of favour 1848 Original 3 Version of Law-which of course for cut of Seats transfiguration motive in some final agreements-but one has to that agree that this was a incumplimiento version in a @@@1960s still, and Is some Wagner and like this deserve to be listened.
A register develops the few chances of orchestral indiscipline but a suggestion that in general one touching is anything another that glorious is arrant atrocity!

Vocally , Has come to expect that still in a less register Wagner do, active modern register at least one says “ less than indispensible” action.

Felizmente This is not a chance here!

There is tired really to read “sniffy” descriptions of Theo Adam in his prime, which was here.
While it is true that extends his career further some limits of his full vocal powers and many the latest actions are characterised for unsteadinesses, here is in the glorious form that rids an intelligent reading, powerful of the soul has tortured exasperated for redemption-and fantastically sung.

Martti Talvela Daland Is in next perfection like him a lot of odds.

Has fusion of luxury in Annelies Burmeister like the really touching Mary, he casualidad to listen one infamous Solti/Culshaw “ Ours Siegfried” Ernst Kozub likes Erik, ringing of upper but clumsy note in phrasing (but give the reception to this in spite of), Gerhard Unger like this a lot young Steersman and a BBC a lot of drilled and numerous Heart like some sailors, locals and ghosts.

Is not Never be the defender adds of Anja Silja- had it steely glint to his tone and the threat of incipient unsteadiness that has not concerned me paralización-but is ideal in a function of Seats.
Is in good sure “dice” of a principle, desperation and to obsession that characterises each sentence. It is thrilling in his duets with Adam, and electrifying in a final scene.

A presentation is in a form the Hard Rear Book with coverage of slip, has generous notes, photographs and the full English/Germans libretto-so it is this that maintains a first recommendation of election?
Well, can be reason this work, arguably an easy plus to “spend was “has tried felizmente a bit intractable on disk!
The modern register invariably there is disappointed-Karajan, Solti, Sinopoli, Barenboim, Mayor, Janowski-all have had serious defects.
A Levine is wonderfully very sung-particularly Voigt and Heppner-but the times are slow to a point to do this sound of register rushed!

Finds to return to a 1955 Keilberth Bayreuth hover-in stereo-and more listened in Pristine Classics, a Sawallisch Bayreuth near and a Konwitschny/to the berlin dipped in Brilliant Classics although this involves to tolerate the squally Marianne Schech. More than all (my surprise adds!) It is a “True Version ” –place it Scottish-down Bruno Weil with Force of Colony, although it is now difficult to obtain another that in ruinous cost.
Golden HAS George Londra glorious-but is indifferently directed and any backed for an inspiring mould, like this with all this in alcohol, in this new presentation a Klemperer to the surfaces likes them to them the strongest recommendation! 5 Glorious Stars. Stewart Crowe.

Am trying again and again with Klemperer registers. Until today I never found so only to an action liked them really.
Has purchased today this register of ' give Fliegende Holländer'. Although a remastering is obviously brilliant in his new form but directly all some characteristic negations of Klemperer art of the interpretation that comes to light already in an inaugural. One east listening a down assaid and unfinished New Philharmonia Orchestra with out twenty of tune and hard touching brass. The horns that to to sound likes him the touch in the fanfare of Village, orchestra of serious that paste a lot of injustice of commentary of the time. A general orchestral sound is also very dry and without charm. A far cry of a same orchestra in Karajan classical 'Rosenkavalier' register. At all to compare with a CSO and Solti or a VPO under Dohnanyi both in DECCA. For me it is the big question like the people can say Klemperer was in a same class that Toscanini and Szell for chance. Beside this Klemperer has used another edition of a bookmark, with seperated laws. Of this version are not the particular defender. I think that that this work would owe that continue without interruption. Imho Ossia Register it disappointed . Any soloist is everything reasonably well, but no better that in other accounts. The exception is Anja Silja radiant Seats, which underline like this one of a better on disk. In another hand Adam Holländer sounds quite boring.
