Can anyone tell me about Tchaikovsky's Ballets: Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty. I'm looking for the better variety, doesnt have to be on the same label. Is it true that recordings from the early 70s and before sound technologically inferior, even when mastered on SACD? I would prefer the best of everything, but I am willing to sacrifice some emotion for far better SQ. I see that Warner has released each ballet as a 2 or 3 disk on SACD, but they seem to be older recordings, from the 70s rather than say the Chandos recordings, made in 2012 and 2013.
I have some recordings made in the 60s 70s and they sound as good (some better) as new recordings
The best I've come across is a 1985 recording from BIS. They play with gusto, all captured in a great recording.
Joseph Haydn cello concertos /queyras
DG 139 014 Johann and Josef Strauss, H V Karajan. DG 139 423 Brahms , Wagner, Otto Gerdes
Genre wise, scores of games especially the Jrpg genre has one of the best classical pieces I've heard.
The organ works by César Franck, performed with largesse and verve by Jean Guillou. This recording captures the magnificent van den Heuvel and the lush acoustics of Saint Eustache.
One of my favorite interpretations (sorry Sergiu)..the other one being Bernstein's with Wiener (sorry Sergiu )
Can you elaborate on this? I would have to agree but have only experienced a couple older final fantasy scores; from Nobuo Uematsu.
I was listening to The Planets by Ozawa Seiji 1979, and while the beginning two tracks had silence, the later has noticeable hiss. Unfortunately, new recordings will always be better in this regard.
Probably the two most popular game soundtrack symphonies. Some may argue that it's a different genre...
Dragon Quest with Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony
Final Fantasy with LSO
agree with that, hissy recordings are often tape or LP transfers, new recordings are recorded in hard drives. Yes I've heard recordings hiss but I try to forget it
