Thank you for recommendation and for the link. It really seems to be a great album. What about their pricing? They want 10 USD "or more". Could you explain.

 

reg.,

Bernhard

You can get it for the stated price or give the artist more money. The stated price is a minimum.


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>Kii Control>Audiolense DRC>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Agree, just bought it yesterday as well. A review is in the making.

 

Great. I for myself of course have my references of these well known Beethoven sonatas. And I am interested about your's. :)

+1. I am a great admirer of Perahia's Bach. So I am curious to hear about his Beethoven (my favorite Beethoven cycles: Kempff, Gilels).

 

Perhaps not 'album of the evening' , but track of the evening: now listening to Bach's BWV 848, comparing the eight versions I own. Richter and Tureck rule... But Pollini, Janssen and Fellner are also good. And what's wrong with Hewitt? Just avoid Gould... 

 

Happy listening, cheers! (Pint of the evening: Chimay blue).

Jean Sibelius

Symphony No. 1

Osmo Vänskä/Minnesota Orchestra

 

Current favorite recording of this symphony, although that changes, I have 6 other recordings I also love, and they each have something wonderful that the others don't quite match.

I can't get off side one of this album:

Recording SQ is great (especially if your system reproduces deep buttery bass).  Usually, an ensemble of "all-star" musicians makes the music feel generisized, but these songs sound so authentic and are quite beautiful.

Yup, that's a fun one. Had it for Song of the Day Dec 19, 2017, but Prelude only. So BWV 848/1 would be more appropriate. Now Album of the Evening yesterday and today:

 

Vivaldi: Farnace

Jordi Savall, Le Concert des Nations, et al.

Alexander Melnikov’s latest release. Four composers on four different pianos. Both beautiful and insightful. 

 

Streaming from Qobuz 

I do like Melnikov and all of these composers but this one leaves me untouched, don't know why. Very good sound though but I just don't understand why he picked those pieces of music. But then again, I am no musician and mostly do not grasp the intellectual aspects of classical music. Music has to touch my heart and this one does not. But that's only me.

Often I value your reviews and insights but not in this case ;) Why? because I have already made up my mind. This one is just beautiful. I have both Kempff on DG and Brautigam on BIS (all of Beethoven's sonatas) and really like most of them very very much. Kempff may be considered by some as being just a little bit too restrained but there is something about his playing that just keeps me listening and Brautigam perhaps just the opposite of Kempff, very vivid and sometimes furious. Some might say slightly over the edge but oh so captivating.

BUT Perahia OMG - to my ears the best Mondschein I've ever heard and the Hammerklavier quite convincing as well. A must have!
