“Schubert Lieder – Orchestrated by Max Reger & Anton Webern” – Christian Elsner, tenor/ Berlin Radio-Sym. Orch./ Marek Janowski – Pentatone
They won’t supplant the originals, but they do have a charm all their own.
DVORAK: Symphony No. 9; SMETANA: The Moldau; LISZT: Les Préludes – Berlin Radio Sym. Orch./ Ferenc Fricsay – DGG Pure Audio stereo Blu-ray
More than 50 years old, this Pure Audio remastering sounds fresh and exciting.
WAGNER: Götterdammerung (Complete Opera) – Lance Ryan (Siegfried)/ Petra Lang (Brünnhilde)/ Matti Salminen (Hagen)/ Berlin Radio Sym. Choir and Orch./ Marek Janowski– Pentatone Classics
I was anticipating greatness. I got very good, but in the end it’s not even close to a near miss.
BARTOK: The Three Piano Concertos – Geza Anda, piano/ Berlin Radio Sym. Orch./ Ferenc Fricsay – DGG/Pristine Audio
Producer/editor Andrew Rose revives an already-brilliant DGG original recording of the Bartok concertos with a new “finish,” and the result (on both CD and hi-res) yields potent Bartok piano concertos for the ages.
SCHUMANN: Cello Concerto in A Minor; BRAHMS: Piano Concerto No. 1 – Jacqueline du Pre, cello/ Bruno Leonardo Gelber, p./ Berlin Radio-Sym.Orch./ Gerd Albrecht – Audite
Three young virtuoso talents make their mark in the concert of March 5, 1963 from Berlin, and two-thirds of that historic occasion is preserved in some luxurious playing of Schumann and Brahms.
WAGNER: Lohengrin (complete opera) – Soloists/Berlin Radio Choir & Sym. Orch./Marek Janowski – PentaTone (3 discs)
Now with two outstanding hi-res Lohengrins on the market, Wagner fans are salivating.
