Best classical recordings...ever! - Page 128

post #1906 of 8954

Now playing:

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

On paper, this one seems like weird mix: historical score version, very fast tempi, but modern instruments.  But it works!

I have the 78rpm version of Mitropoulis. It's good, but for a historical performance, I prefer Rachmaninov/Philadelphia.

Enjoying this at the mo, a really lovely collection of American 20th century works at the hands of Marriner.

The way you say that makes it sound like Billy Budd.

Actually yes I get it.. Billy Budd is a 20th century opera. And Marriner is British... 

 

BUT! Marriner spent a great chunk of his life conducting American orchestras as well as St Martin's.

Moving swiftly on... 

 

This comes highly recommended if anyone hasn't heard it. Though it was a huge seller in the 90's. 

 

 

 

Gorgeous from start to finish.

Ok here's your last two for today, 

 

 

Busoni's masterpiece with the late and great John Ogdon. 

 

 

 

This is a wonderful collection of orchestral works from Rameau's operas and ballets. It really flows and works as a whole.

More like the 'turn of the (loose) screw' if you ask me...
