Dvorak: Symphony No. 9 - Kertesz        (11 of 17 found this review helpful)
  March 13, 2009

If there is any recording that I would spend extra for, this is probably it. I know the $60 price tag leaves many gasping in horror. Is this what we've come to? $60 for something that is a little over $30 in Japan? Well it is worth it! I might go out of my way to pay the same if Esoteric finally ... more
Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique - Paray        (8 of 8 found this review helpful)
  October 16, 2005

Oh my God! Wow!!! Are you ready to be terrorized by a March that literally makes you feel as if you ARE the person being marched to the scaffold or a Witch's Sabbath that makes you feel as if Witches are right there harassing you? For the longest time I merely listened to the Symphonie Fantastique ... more

I have been waiting for this recording for months to come out on MFSL. I ordered it through Amazon and it kept being put on backorder until finally in August it came out. Finally! As for the recording. I have listened to it a couple of times now and, while not up there with the best of the really ... more

I have been waiting for this recording to grace the SACD format since the inception of the Living Stereo recordings and I am in no way disappointed in the recording or the performance. It is a three channel recording and as such we get a wonderfully full and detailed account of one of classical ... more
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6, Francesca da Rimini - Neeme Järvi          (6 of 8 found this review helpful)

After listening to this about 5 times, I feel I can now give my thoughts on the matter. It is generally accepted that whenever a conductor comes to a work they have some idea how they want to conduct it. I'm sure Jarvi came to the Tchaikovsky 6 with some previous conceptions on how to proceed. I'm ... more

Just want to say one thing, then I am on an extended leave from here. Uh, no it won't. Ever hear of Facebook and the fact that 83 million accounts are fake? You think that correct names will make it different and the fact is, no it won't. You can certainly track ISPs in order to ban people who come around, but ISPs are also changeable. ... more

Discussion: Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 - Richter, Sanderling
August 6, 2012
So I guess there's no need for you to comment on it then Canonical since you believe that all older releases aren't worth it and you're willing to take some yahoo group comment about the sound as gospel and the "consensus" from everyone else saying something about this release. But who is that really? One person, who you probably don't even know or ... more
