Absolutely it is.  Membran doesn't have anything else this good I've heard.

SQ could be slightly better though. Has someone compared this version with Isserlis/LSO ?

Or with France Springuel/ I Fiamminghi version issued by Telarc?

Only audio portion of the concert, excellent quality.

 

A must for fans of Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson, another side project of Wilson to check out is Blackfield.

Divine Theatre: Sacred Motets by Giaches de Wert

Stile Antico

interview: http://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/interview/1691/Giaches-de-Wert-from-Stile-Antico

 

Another Gramophone Early Music nominee. This one has grown on me.

 

Quote

Giaches de Wert is best known for his madrigals - the perfect bridge between the polyphony of the high Renaissance and the new style of Monteverdi. Stile Antico's new album introduces us to another side of this composer who, though Flemish-born, spent most of his life in Italy, primarily in Mantua. The unique and dramatic style of these remarkable motets cannot fail to ravish explorers of this 'divine theatre'. 
 

 

" ...a pig or a dog-faced baboon or some still stranger creature of those that have sensations is the measure of all things...."

--- Plato, Theaetetus, 161c

Great album!  Although I love xylophone I did not know the existence of this extraordinary player.

 

Thanks @duxservit

Try some of Bobby Hutcherson's albums with Harold Land, like "San Francisco", for a real treat. His passing, a year ago, was a true loss to jazz.
