  1. Agree, you can’t have enough of this masterpiece. Could well be THE ultimate chamber music work.
  2. Here are mine: https://musicophilesblog.com/2015/06/21/schuberts-amazing-chamber-music-1-the-string-quintet-played-by-the-pavel-haas-quartet/ https://musicophilesblog.com/2016/04/27/quatuor-ebene-gautier-capucon-play-schuberts-string-quartet-cant-get-enough-of-it/ Both are outstanding.
  3. The complete Schubert piano box by Uchida is indeed a great start. Here are some others: https://musicophilesblog.com/2016/10/20/schubert-a-journey-through-11-versions-of-schuberts-piano-sonata-d959/ I‘d also focus on the late piano sonatas first. For Schumann, I find Kissin to be an excellent starting point.
  4. I actually also didn't so much enjoy the Schiff Schubert album, at least less so than the last one. However, I don't mind so much the piano sound, after all, Schubert himself probably heard a similar sound. But his playing inspires me less. Therefore, back to a safe bet, for probably the last time this year:
  5. What do you think of this? I typically often struggle with reconstructions
  6. Are you a Beliber? Bad pun aside, this one is quite good, but I also like Podger for the SQ.
  7. No I'm not obsessed at all with the Passions this time of the year. Not at all. Therefore: In two days I can go back to another genre.
  8. I still often go back to this Deller recording.
  9. Last opportunity to listen to a Passion this week, so another one on the playlist, acquired in 24/88 from Hyperion following Gramophone’s recommendation.
  10. You may want to look out for something that is actually by Albinoni himself. The Adagio is from the 20th century. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice music, just not baroque.
  11. All of it? I’m impressed. I can barely sit through one of them. I have the Solti cycle as well, actually both on vinyl and as download, but I’m still waiting for the day that I really start to fully it.
  12. Great article. As a classical music lover myself and HD800 owner, I’m obviously pleased with your conclusion. Leaves a lot more money to be spent on music. That said, I’ll look into these after market ear pads you described!
  13. In flight entertainment if the day: Can’t get enough of this fantastic album.
