Bartok: Concerto for Orchestra - Eschenbach        (2 of 5 found this review helpful)
  December 28, 2005

A great recording. It brings together 3 important ingredients of an outstanding orchestral recording: a world class orchestra, world class acoustics and world class sound recording. Most other good recordings will contain only one, at most two, of those ingredients. Now let's see Mr. Porter record ... more

I think this is a great set.I have compared it to the release on cd and found even the sacd's cd layer to be superior.The string sound is beautifull and brilliant but still warm.I find the localization of the string sections to be precise and stable, the definition of the wood winds positions is ... more

I very much encourage you to keep continuing to follow your artistical conscience against financial ... more

Just by the way, concernig financial sense: the Pelleas recording I mentioned in my previous post has become a great artistic achievement selling (and creating revenue) until today, precisely because financial sense was not the holly grail during the production, that it is today.

This financial sense, financial sense, financial sense arguing makes me long for the time when for example Karajan used nearly an entire recording session, not recording a tone, untill he evoked precisisely the special sound he wanted from the strings to fit a few seconds long passage in Pelleas et Melisande. Where has that artistic longing for ... more
