Just got this from CC's site--- Another fabulous BFO release. A little Wagner goes a long way with me, and this selection was just about perfect. No surprises with the recording whatsoever--- wonderful as always. We know now that there's more Mahler and Brahms--along with Bruckner coming, and judging by past recordings and current concerts some of you have been lucky enough to attend, I'm eagerly awaiting it all. Maybe not so much the Brucker.....

And if you'd like a taste of Wagner, this comes highly recommended by

Bill

Thanks, I already have the whole Melba Ring cycle, but your insight might just change my mind about getting this stuff again. Thanks.

Got to listen to this for the first time last night. Really good sound. Lots of breadth and depth and pinpoint imaging. Definitely demo quality. The performances were good although I like my Wagner a little more edgy and dynamic. Since it was not over-played I could hear detail usually missing in these pieces.

Somewhat disappointed that Tannhäuser excerpts were eliminated for final release. Still, I plan to get this soon.

While the Tannhäuser was part of the longer BFO Wagner concert program, it was not in the album planning, or part of the recording session.

My comments were based on the cover art at the time (post 216) and response from CC to my request for information on title contents (post 217) in above thread. Cover art indicated excerpts of Tannhäuser as part of contents at the time.

EDIT: FWIW, the link above isn't working correctly. It's supposed to go to p. 22 of CC thread.

EDIT2: Link fixed.

Hope Channel gets the correct cover art to Amazon.
All of them have the wrong image that includes the Tannhäuser excerpts.

Thanks, difficult to get things changed by Amazon but we will give it a try!

Why does it take forever for CC discs to be released in UK?

distributors wait until they have a finished product before putting the it into the planning. Usually I hope to have the cd on the shelf for at least two months before releasing to time the releases together, but because it took Ivan longer than usual to get the chance to do the final listening I did not have a pressing until April. I put mine online straight away, but of course every distributor has their own planning to tie into promotions.
