I have that Reiner on Chesky, sounds great but performance only 8/10.

 

I have a few others, including the famous Kleiber/VPO, and this is probably my favourite:

Didn't want to jump the gun with Christmas music, but 'tis the season...

Took the kids to hear the Christ Church Cathedral Choir on Saturday.

Family concerts are always noisy and the programme is generally aimed at the younger audience but the choir does have a beautiful sound.

Nice, I love the chance to hear large choral performances at this time of year.

Seattle has a worthy early music scene and I attended a concert on Sunday. Not a holiday event but a concert featuring Tamara Friedman performing Bach and Beethoven on a baroque lautenwerck and copy of 1814 Johann Fritz Viennese forte-piano.

The lautenwerk (aka lautenwerck) is an instrument I was long curious to hear live. From Wikipedia...

"It was similar to a harpsichord, but with gut rather than metal strings, producing a mellow tone".

The concert was preceded by a history of the instruments and a chance for the audience to examine them respectfully and ask questions of the artist, Tamara Friedman.

 

I am curious about the sound of the lautenwerk; a mellow sounding harpsichord is something that I would probably enjoy.

I had basically the same reaction until listening to any of the Caro Mitis "Harpsichord Gems" series. As much as I have reservations about the auto-tune level of misinformation portrayed in modern remasters and recordings. It does reward the listener occasionally. For the price of admission you can get the best seats not just a good seat.

 

On that note...

 

In my experience, reproducing the sound of a harpsichord is a very demanding exercise and many systems fail abysmally when put to the test.

A beautifully played recording of Brahms' Violin Sonatas, and nice sounding too.

BTW, there are some awesome recordings of Eugene Onegin from soviet period. The one which I would suggest is with Galina Visnevskaya (she was the boss in the family of Rostropovich) and Ivan Lemeshev. The sound is very soviet, but performance is breathtaking. This is the best I know, and I am not sure I am able to embrace any European reading of this.

 

Thanks for the tip; I really like Onegin.

Going to play a small suite:
