Mendelssohn: Paulus - Bernius        (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  Review by Luukas March 20, 2015

This is absolutely the best recording of Mendelssohn's "St. Paul"! Carus offers a crystal clear multi-channel sound. I listened this with the study score (Breitkopf & Härtel) and the recording brought more instrumental and vocal details to us. Bernius tempi were peaceful. It wasn't only a ... more
