Chopin: Nocturnes 1-21 - Jude          (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
  November 8, 2014

This is another Lyrinx piano recording with unacceptable engineering. I listened to this SACD rather late at night, and when it came to track 3 (Nocturne no. 2), it sounded like a nightmare. There is this horrible buzzing noise. Not loud but unmistakable, as if someone had thrown paper clips onto ... more
Mozart: The Piano Sonatas - Robert Silverman          (5 of 7 found this review helpful)
  December 19, 2010

This should have been the definitive recording. Indeed, it is the only complete set of the Mozart Piano Sonatas to be found on SACD, and it is recorded in DSD, and, "technically", to an audiophile standard. I had not heard of Robert Silverman and had no idea what to expect, and being a skeptic, I ... more
Handel: Concerti Grossi Op. 6 - The Avison Ensemble        (8 of 10 found this review helpful)
  October 17, 2010

EMI Music Japan will release 101 Hybrid SACDs from December 2011 to March 2012
December 31, 2011
Hi, I am very interested in the role of the CEDAR processing these remasterings. On the one hand, the technique has clearly evolved from what it was 25 years ago. On the other hand, the same photos are shown within the Japanese-language booklet of each of these releases, and it seems apparent that not all would require the same degree of ... more
