The highlight of the 2013 Salzburg Festival in Giuseppe Verdi’s bicentennial year, Don Carlo is conducted by Antonio Pappano and stars Jonas Kaufmann in the title role. “With Antonio Pappano in the pit, Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros brought to their interpretations of the leading role rapturous arcs of phrasing and tone that we have not heard for a generation. Verdi's music can weather mediocrity and still provide audiences with enjoyment ... but here he was truly honoured as he would have wished.” (The Telegraph)

Utah Symphony Orchestra / Maurice Abravanel - Ralph Vaughan Williams
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 253 MB | Full Artwork: 38 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Vanguard # ATM CD 1507 | Country/Year: US 2004, 1966/1967
Genre: Classical | Style: Romantic, Early 20th Century

"Wonderful music conjuring up pastoral England before four wheel drives and second homes. Sound generally very good with wide dynamic range and lush string tone, although the orchestra sounds a little constrained particularly in the Tallis Fantasia, and there is audible background noise in quieter passages. Solo instruments very realistic..." ~sa-cd.net

Siegfried Wagner - Complete Overtures Vol. 1
Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz / Werner Andreas Albert

Siegfried Wagner had the best musical pedigree that a composer could conceivably have: the son of Richard Wagner and the grandson of Franz Liszt (through Liszt's daughter Cosima). His ancestry proved to be a decidedly mixed blessing, however, as the younger Wagner -- despite working in a different musical era -- was never fully able to step outside of the long shadow cast by his father, even as he engendered the jealousy of musical rivals. (...) Following Siegfried Wagner's death, the family did its best to suppress performances of his music, casting its lot with the more popular and profitable works of Richard Wagner, and it was only with lapsing of various copyrights, and the formation of the Siegfried Wagner Society in 1972, that his music was made available again, first in concert editions and more recently in full performances.

Karin Schaupp - Mosaic: Australian Guitar Concertos (2014)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:15:05 | 172 MB
Label: ABC Classics | Release Year: 2014

Karin Schaupp is one of the most outstanding guitarists on the international scene, acclaimed not only for her breathtaking technical mastery, but also for the passion and intensity of her playing. With this album she celebrates the rich and vibrant Australian guitar repertoire, presenting four concertos that create a uniquely Australian musical landscape. Peter Sculthorpe’s Nourlangie was inspired by the ancient beauty of Kakadu in Australia’s far north, and the resonances between the music’s notes speak of the strength and serenity of the land. Ross Edwards was drawn to the rich flora and fauna of Arnhem Land and the magnificent turquoise of the Arafura Sea beyond. His joyous ‘dance/chants’, celebrating the mysterious and infinitely changing patterns of birdsong and the insect chorus, frame an exquisitely calm, song-like slow movement.

Vladimir Horowitz - Horowitz in Hamburg. The Last Concert.
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 270 MB | Full Artwork: 117 MB | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Deutsche Grammophon # 00289 477 7558 GH | Country/Year: Germamy 2008
Genre: Classical | Style: Romantic, Viennese School, Piano

"...Horowitz demonstrates that the incredible gifts that won him adoration over a lifetime of performing had not lessened (...) one can only marvel at the charismatic sparks that still flew from his fingers in his eighth decade (...) bearing in mind that this is a live recording, there is an extra measure of interest. The maintenance of Horowitz's keyboard technique is in itself quite astonishing; his fingers fly over the keys in Moszkowski's "Etincelles" as lightly and accurately as they did when the first recorded it in 1951 (...) it is all the more refreshing to have this extraordinary last testament of the man whose name personifies the glorious heights of 20th-century pianism." ~Fanfare

Praised by Bloomberg for having “mastered the role” and “acting her socks off,” Angela Gheorghiu leads an all-star cast which includes Ramón Vargas and Roberto Frontali, with the brilliant conductor Lorin Maazel on the podium. Angela Gheorghiu is the definitive Violetta of her generation, the standard-setter against whom all other exponents of this role must be judged for the foreseeable future. Her affinity for Verdi‘s fragile, gentle-hearted courtesan is rooted in a fine balance of acting and singing skills. Giuseppe Verdi´s immortal opera in a sumptuous production by Liliana Cavani, with world famous singers – a treat for viewers everywhere!

"... a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Salzburg Festival...The designer is Rudolf Heinrich, whose atmospheric sets cleverly suggest the different rooms in the Almaviva mansion within which Rennert, as ever, directs the work with an unforced feeling for the thoughts and actions of the Count’s scheming household and entirely without exaggeration...Berry’s then-reigning Figaro leads his eponymous opera with the confidence and exuberance of long experience in the part. His antagonist is the sturdy, impulsive Count of Wixell, obviously driven by testosterone. Both sing with absolute command of the stage and boast exemplary tone and technique with voices of properly contrasted timbre... Reri Grist’s Susanna is at once worldly-wise and quick-witted..." - Alan Blyth, GRAMOPHONE

Label/Cat#: Decca # 475 6907 DH | Country/Year: Germany 2004
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque

Eschewing its usual heavy orchestral sound in favor of a more stripped-down instrumentation, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen's second album offers a fresh interpretation of one of the most performed classical works, Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The 2005 follow-up to her Barry Wordsworth-conducted debut, the subtle but passionate renditions of the "La Primavera," "L'estate," "L'autunno," and "L'inverno" concertos are performed with a sparse, eight-piece ensemble including Lithuanian violinist Julian Rachlin, her cellist brother Maarten, and harpsichordist father Jan.

Kalevi Aho, Carl Nielsen - Clarinet Concertos (repost)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 318 Mb
Label:BIS - Date:2007

Fearsomely talented Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst continues his conquest of the major concerto repertoire for his instrument with this recording of Carl Nielsen's 1928 Clarinet Concerto, paired with a new concerto by Finland's Kalevi Aho. The Nielsen concerto is a dense work in which the clarinet and the orchestra spend a lot of time going their separate ways, with the path of the clarinet being very twisted indeed. Difficult arabesques on the clarinet are interrupted without warning by heraldic blasts from the orchestral horns. The concerto was greeted by early reviewers as ......
