Vivaldi: Sacred Choral Music, Vol. 1 - Mallon        (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  Review by beardawgs January 18, 2005

Kevin Mallon and his band are admirable – just compare this Vivaldi disc with Charpentier’s: recorded in the same venue eight months apart and they sound and feel like two different choirs and orchestras, equally successful and authentic in French and Italian baroque: Mallon’s brisk tempi, ... more
Charpentier: Messe de Minuit pour Noël, Te Deum - Mallon        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)

Bruckner: Symphony No. 5 - Harnoncourt        (8 of 9 found this review helpful)
  Review by akiralx January 17, 2005

This is perhaps Harnoncourt's best Bruckner recording to date, and the second on SACD (after the Ninth). The release comes on two discs - the first easily accommodating the symphony (about 73 minutes), and the second having rehearsal extracts (in German, on CD only) which I haven't yet ... more
