Editorial for February 2015

DeccaLogo

This month we are awarding a single huge package of 51 CDs – the recorded legacy of the great pianist Sviatoslav Richter. It will go to one of our readers who registers this month using our simple form.  A wide range of Richter’s huge repertory is covered, spanning nearly forty years of music-making (1956-1992), so the majority of the discs are stereo. He died in 1997, and this set of his enormous recorded legacy honors the 100th anniversary of his birth. There are three categories: Solo, Chamber, and Concerto recordings, plus his acclaimed Sofia Recital. Hundreds of treasures are to be found in this stylish set. The lucky winner will be listed below early in March.

And here are the six lucky winners of the two-CD set of jazz albums – our January drawing – Such Sweet Thunder & Lonely City: Brent Adler, Bexley OH; Ed Cameron, Buffalo Mills PA; Bruce Scheiner, Levittown NY; Joe Spatafora, St. Petersburg FL; Susan Alles, Bernalillo NY; John Walker, Dallas TX.


EDITORIAL

AUDIOPHILE AUDITION began as a local program in San Francisco and then in 1985 as a weekly national radio series hosted by John Sunier, and aired for 13½ years on up to 200 public radio and commercial stations. In September 1998 its web site for program listings was expanded to this free Internet publication. February 2015 is our 191st issue. All disc reviews are added thru the month as they are written and received, usually daily. The five most recent reviews appear at the top of each Section Index. The Home Page lists the five latest published reviews, the Section Index lists the past two months of reviews, and the Archive goes back to January 2001. The Disc Index lists all past reviews.  Vinyls and Pure Audio Blu-rays (and some DVD-As) are included in the SACD/Hi-Res Section, as well as exceptional xrcds.
