Beethoven: Symphonies - Jaap van Zweden          (4 of 5 found this review helpful)
  Review by hanser October 19, 2004

I must admit to be a fan of historical informed practice and have listened mostly to Norringtons recording with the London Classical Players on original instruments. The Zweden recording nicely combines important elements of this kind of interpretation (swift tempi, clear rhythmic impulses, strong ... more

Beethoven & Mendelssohn: Violin Concertos - Heifetz/Munch        (9 of 9 found this review helpful)
  Review by thepilot October 18, 2004

Rumour has it that many recording engineers have lost their sleep, after the living presence and living stereo reissues. It is not a small thing after all, to have recordings that sound much better than many modern super-duper DSD multichannel recordings, and we are talking about 3 channel analoque ... more
