  Review by anduandi January 31, 2005

I agree to my predecessor as far as the music is concerned. Sonically I must say it's a big disappointment to me. I doesn't sound clear and dynamic as it should but flat. There's hardly a difference between the cd and the sa-cd-layer (I only hear in the stereo mode !). I think it's the record ... more
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring, Nielsen: Symphony No. 5 - Paavo Järvi          (5 of 10 found this review helpful)

Johann Sebastian will survive transcription, and recomposition of classic works is at least as old as ... more
Vivaldi: Concertos for the Emperor - English Concert/Manze          (8 of 12 found this review helpful)
  Review by Christine Tham January 30, 2005

This is a selection of six concertos from a collection of twelve presented by Vivaldi in manuscript form to Charles VI in September 1728. Well, not quite, for the actual manuscript presented to the Emperor is missing the solo violin part, and the versions we hear on this disc are "reconstructions" ... more
