Ferdinand Herold - Piano Concertos Nos. 2, 3, 4 (Neuburger, Sinfonia Varsovia, H. Niquet)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers | 304 Mb
Label:Mirare - Date:2011

I had never heard of Hérold before I came across this disc, but I'm sure glad I found him. I won't pretend these works are just as worthy as Beethoven or Mozart (I'm definitely not qualified to make such an assessment), but they are extremely enjoyable and deserve to be heard. The style is, as described on the back cover, somewhere between Mozart and the young Chopin (like Hummel maybe?). The works included are Piano Concertos Nos. 2-4; No. 1, according to the notes, is both a bit amateurish and almost impossible to read/reconstruct.......

Kemp English - Leopold Anton Kozeluch: Complete Keyboard Sonatas Vol 2 (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 243 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Grand Piano | Catalog Number: 643

Leopold Koželuch, an eminent contemporary of Mozart and at the time considered by many to be the superior composer, was one of the first champions of the fortepiano, and his compositions for the instrument enshrined the highest qualities of Viennese style. Composed over nearly four decades his sonatas show progressive development, embracing lyrical melodies, delightful harmonic shifts, and foretastes of Romantic drama. They can be judged worthy to stand alongside those of Haydn, Dussek, Clementi and Mozart, and as a precursor to those of Beethoven.

Sam Haywood, Steven Isserlis - Julius Isserlis: Piano Music (2014)
X Lossless Decoder | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 177 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | Catalog Number: 68025

In 1989 the young pianist Sam Haywood was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Julius Isserlis Scholarship. Years later, having become friends with Julius’s grandson Steven, Sam came across some of Julius’s piano compositions in a drawer at the house of George, Julius’s son. The editions were unclear and full of printing errors; so, struck by the beauty of the music, Sam decided to make his own edition, the fruits of which are to be heard on this recording.

Henry Purcell - Love's Goddess Sure was Blind: The Complete Funeral Music for Queen Mary
The Sixteen / The Symphony of Harmony and Invention / Harry Christophers
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC (tracks): 330 MB | Artwork: 36 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Coro # COR16024 | Country/Year: UK 2004
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque, Vocal, Sacred

"...But now, in the middle of the 2000s, they're back, and they've brought with them an even more wonderful recording of Purcell's funeral music. It's more wonderful because, good as the Collins recording sounded, this Coro recording sounds even better: deeper, richer, warmer, and even more detailed. It's more wonderful because, good as the earlier performances were, these performances sound even better: more passionate, more precise, and even more powerful. And it's more wonderful because while this is exactly the same recording that appeared on Collins, it somehow sounds more wonderful released on the Coro label. How this is possible is impossible to know, but that it does is indisputable. If you don't have Harry Christophers and the Sixteen's Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, here it is again. This time, don't miss it."

Julius Drake, Gerald Finley, Magnus Johnston - Romanzo Di Central Park: Songs By Ives (2008)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 228 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | Catalog Number: 67644

In a second disc of Ives’s songs, the unbeatable partnership of Finley and Drake again enthral their listeners and bring them to the emotional core of each work. The range of style and approach in Ives’s text-setting is startling—from simple, sentimental ballads to complex and strenuous philosophical discourses, sometimes encompassing the most dissonant and virtuosic piano parts, sometimes with the accompaniment pared down to an almost minimalist phrase-repetition. Even those composed in a superficially conventional or ‘polite’ tonal idiom usually contain harmonic, rhythmic or accentual surprises somewhere.

Philip Glass - Glass Box. A Nonesuch Retrospective
10xCD Box | EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC (tracks): 3,56 GB | Artwork: 122 MB
Label/Cat#: Nonesuch # 424508-2 | Country/Year: US 2008 | 5% Recovery Info
Genre: Classical, Electronica, Stage & Screen | Style: Minimalism, Chamber Music, Contemporary, Soundtrack

This elegantly packaged 10 disc retrospective surveys four decades of work by Philip Glass, from his earliest solo pieces to his world-renowned operas to his Oscar-nominated film scores. In music, words and pictures, it traces the evolution, as critic Tim Page puts it in his liner notes essay, of 'the first composer to win a wide, multi-generational audience in the opera house, the concert hall, the dance world, in film and in popular music-simultaneously.' The long-awaited release of this set follows this past spring's triumphal new staging of Glass's 1980 Satyagraha at the Metropolitan Opera House...

Giacomo Puccini - La Boheme
Placido Domingo / Montserrat Caballe / London Philharmonic Orchestra / Sir Georg Solti
2xCD | EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 444 MB | Full Artwork: 81 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: RCA Red Seal # 88697579022 | Country/Year: Europe 2009, 1974
Genre: Classical | Style: Opera, Romantic

"Most operaphiles would not consider the hyper-dynamic Sir Georg Solti to be a likely candidate to conduct La bohème, but they also probably did not expect him to do an excellent La traviata prior to the sensational Angela Gheorghiu debut performance at Covent Garden. Herbert von Karajan’s Decca-London recording with Pavarotti and Freni has traditionally and deservedly set the standard for La bohème recordings, but this one holds up surprisingly well to direct comparison..." ~Fanfare

Busoni - Doktor Faust (Philippe Jordan, Thomas Hampson) [2006]
NTSC 16:9 (720x480) VBR Auto Pan&Scan | Deutsch (LinearPCM, 2 ch) Deutsch (Dolby AC3, 6 ch) Deutsch (DTS, 5 ch) | 6.56 Gb+7.16 Gb (2*DVD9)
Classical | ArtHaus | Sub: English, Deutsch, Francais, Espanol, Italiano | 172 min+43 min (bonus) | +3% Recovery

Along the years, there's been some argument in the musical press whether Busoni was a great composer or if he rather was, as Richard Strauss's own pun on himself, a first class second rate one. Well, this work, one of the most intriguing operas written during the 20th Century, is indeed a very serious argument towards establishing Busoni among the great composers. It has been slow in gaining recognition since its premiere in 1925, with all too infrequent performances, a kind of cult item that saw the stage, alongside Pfitzner's Palestrina and Hindemith's Mathis der Maler,...
