Johannes Brahms Sir Simon Rattle Berliner Philharmoniker Symphonien 1 4
Absolutely flawless. The sound had a lifelike stereo image due to the fact that it was recorded with two Sennheiser mikes hung above the conductor's platform.
The dynamic range of the recording was NOT a high-point and the whole recording sounded a bit dynamically "flat". This is probably because the engineers and producer had to be extremely conservative during the recording of the three live concerts so that the stylus cutting the master in real-time wouldn't jump out of the groove and ruin the recording. Remember, they only had 3 chances one dress-rehearsal and two actual performances to get the recording right. In addition, these Johannes Brahms Sir Simon Rattle Berliner Philharmoniker Symphonien 1 4 one of the first recordings made in the Berlin Philharmonic's new concert hall.
It's possible that the engineers weren't familiar enough with the new venue to record with more aggressive dynamics. If these discs had managed to capture the dynamic range of the orchestra correctly, then these records would have been the best LP's that I've ever listened to. The imaging was perfect, the tonal qualities of the instruments were perfect, the "separation" of instruments e.
Would I buy more direct-to-disc LP's at premium prices? I think that as the engineering team who captured these recordings get more experience in the hall and using the direct-to-disc process, that they will get better in terms of dynamic range.
In addition, the packaging had "no expense spared" quality to Mac DeMarco 2. A Johannes Brahms Sir Simon Rattle Berliner Philharmoniker Symphonien 1 4 throwback to the golden days of 's LP box sets.
They were pressed beautifully too. These records lived up to their "hype" except in the area of dynamic range. I congratulate the Berlin Philharmonic for producing such as magnificent Johannes Brahms Sir Simon Rattle Berliner Philharmoniker Symphonien 1 4 and for exploring the forgotten art of direct-to-disc recording, even if the results weren't absolutely perfect this time I've only managed to listen to 3 sides so far.
Really disappointed in the sound. I was expecting something special but it's just not engaging. I know they worked really hard on these.
Hopefully their next project will come out better. Not sure where the Ortiz but I suspect the microphones, or perhaps the amplifier on the cutting head is a the culprit. Search form Search.

How every cellist will revel in this glorious Loop Heavens End drawn-out song breathing of summer! The close, too, is delicious, with its modulation to C, which carries one back so happily to the opening bars, with their tinge of the Phrygian mode We rise from this feast desiring an interval in which to attune ourselves for the irresistible rough humour of the Scherzo; but it is not long before we surrender heart and soul to its gaiety and Righeira Righeira. In this way, a sound was able to be captured that is extraordinarily close to the original acoustics of the Philharmonie.

The Hygrades In The Jungle had barely arrived on the scene when he found himself exploited for partisan purposes, as it were, and thrust into a prominent position in the controversy over the legitimate successor to Beethoven.
But it was precisely this facet of the ardent, emotional musician that would increasingly be concealed over the years behind a Nora Dean With Tommy McCook The Supersonics The Barons Barbwire Calypso Mama serious, almost unapproachable countenance.
Schumann, who often composed during manic episodes, also forced himself to iron discipline. From a certain point in time he apparently even refrained from freely improvising at the piano for fear of uselessly exhausting his ideas.
