@ Complin : thanks for the recommendations on Mahler 2nd Hope that the situation concerning the QA of the new Jecklin Float will be easily solved
@Analogsurviver : thanks for the recommendation for the Giulini 's Mahler 9th I don't know that this recording is binaural, or else I would have one. But it is very pricey. I only have Mahler 9th by Zinman, Chailly (both are SACD's), Rattle, Barbirolli, Gielen and Bertini, Bernstein (LP). It seems that I prefer Rattle's 9th, I may add Giulini 's later.
I read a thread by LFF and Jude concerning Binaural recordings. I have ordered limited number of CD's because they were quite expensive and am looking forward for those records.
Strauss : Also Sprach Zarathustra and Saint SaensSymphony 3 by Mester
Stravinsky : The Rite of Spring , Rachmaninoff : Symphonic dances , again by Mester
I can report more when I have those. (Also the Binaural recording by Can)
I did not have official confirmation Giulini's being binaural recording until I got Sennheiser/DGG demo LP recorded with Neumann Kunstkopf (exact model # eludes my memory at the moment ) off ebay couple of years ago. I obviously misplaced said LP, as I can not locate it at the moment - not in my Technical Test dept - which means it can be all over the place, as there are many composers represented on it.
Giulini Mahler 9 always did sound better on phones than on speakers - from day one, and you can perhaps get a CD version at reasonable price somewhere.
Nice to see some binaural recordings I am not yet familiar with. Thank you for that.
