Legendary Performances of Scotto: Puccini - Madama Butterfly (Arturo Basile, Renata Scotto, Renato Cioni) [2007/1967]
EAC Rip | FLAC, IMG+CUE, LOG | Covers | 2cd, 556 MB
Classical | Bravissimo | BRV 9910 | CD1:63'17; CD2:72'20

All of these are live recordings so the sound is quite variable. The standard square box contains separate soft plastic sleeves in which the cds are inserted. The advantage is that the cds are well protected (minor risk for scrapes compared to cardboard), but there is no information printed on the sleeve since it is made of plastic. There is some basic information printed on each cd (name, composer, cd #, the act/s and the date of the recording). There is also a small 24pg booklet that introduces the box including some photos as well as content description for each disc (opera, singers, time and location as well as a list of the separate tracks). I have been collecting these boxes for a while and always find it worthwhile as there are gems nicely interspersed in these collections. By Moonfish

Baritone Matthias Goerne, soprano Chen Reiss and cellist Eric Picard come together at Paris’s renowned Salle Pleyel for a concert of Fauré’s works for chorus and orchestra. They are joined by the Orchestre de Paris under the baton of its new musical director, the GRAMMY Award-winning conductor Paavo Järvi. Central to the programme is Fauré’s profound and graceful Requiem, which is complemented by the Cantique de Jean Racine and the rarely performed psalm-setting Super flumina Babylonis, all beautifully sung by the Choeur de l’Orchestre de Paris, and imbued with a delicate intensity by Järvi.

Antonio Vivaldi - I Solisti Italiani - 6 Concertos
EAC+LOG+CUE | APE: 349 MB | Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Denon "Crest 1000" # COCO-70962 | Country/Year: Japan 2008, 1990
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque, Chamber Music

...I Solisti Italiani continues, both spiritually and sonically, where the original Virtuosi di Roma left off, with creamy, expert, middle-of-the-road performances of Baroque and Classical period music, and occasional 20th-century pieces as well. The ensemble is small - only 12 players, without conductor - but the sound is full and caloric, the playing dapper and disciplined.

...There are five fabulous Schubert recordings, including an edge-of-your-seat performance of Erlkönig; five marvelous Schumann recordings, including a catch-in-your-throat performance of Mondnacht; three arias from Bach's Johannes-Passion, featuring a heartbreaking "Mein teuer Heiland"; and seven excepts from several Mozart operas, ending with a delightfully charming performance of the duet from Die Zauberflöte with Quasthoff as Papageno and Montserrat Caballé as Papagena. Listeners already familiar with the German singer's lustrous voice, robust tone, agile delivery, and warm-hearted interpretations will need no more encouragement, unless they already have the original RCA recordings.

Nielsen: Music For Wind Instruments - Athena Ensemble (2008)
X Lossless Decoder | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 166 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos | Catalog Number: 10454

Nielsen composed most of his wind chamber music towards the latter part of his career, when his interests moved from strings to wind instruments. The disc includes the most familiar and widely recorded specimen of Nielsen’s chamber writing, the 1922 Wind Quintet, coupled with lesser known works such as Serenata in Vano, Two Fantasies Op.2 and Canto Serioso. “Both major and minor works are wonderfully played… One can urge immediate acquisition of this disc,” wrote Fanfare. Although, now longer performing publicly, the Athena Ensemble had an excellent career and reputation, “The music is expertly performed with charm, sensitivity and imagination by the Athena Ensemble” said Classic CD (on the Elgar Wind Quintet recording, CHAN 241-33) and this disc is sure to remind listeners of their back catalogue with Chandos.

Hickox, Shelley - Carwithen: Orchestral Music (2006)
X Lossless Decoder | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 231 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Chandos | Catalog Number: 10365

Doreen Carwithen is better known as the devoted wife, Mary, of the composer William Alwyn. When Chandos brought out this CD in the mid-1990s, it revealed her to be a substantial creative personality in her own right: she emerged as a warmly communicative composer, the style of her work owing more to Walton than to her husband. Her writing is strong and purposeful, sometimes adopting syncopated rhythms and stirring melodies, and always enhanced with brilliant and inventive orchestration. We are therefore delighted to reissue these works and at mid-price for the first time.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Cassations G-Dur KV 63 & B-Dur KV 99 & Divertimento D-Dur KV 205
La Petite Bande / Sigiswald Kuijken
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 356 MB | Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Accent # ACC 24187 | Country/Year: Belgium 2006
Genre: Classical | Style: Viennese School

...With a bright tone, buoyant tempos, piquant intonation, effortless ensemble, and relaxed virtuosity, the 12 musicians of La Petite Bande play together with exactly the kind of elegant brilliance and elevated intelligence the music requires. Under Kuijken's hands, these works, composed by the teenage Mozart, sound fresh, witty, tender, and altogether endearing. As delightful an addition to any Mozart shelf as it would be a welcome relief from the spiritual rigors of Bach's cantatas, this disc will please just about every classical enthusiast, especially in Accent's clear, deep 2006 digital sound.

Pachelbel - Canon & Gigue; Bach, Handel, Vivaldi
Musica Antiqua Köln - Reinhard Goebel
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 371 MB | Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Archiv Produktion # 447 285-2 | Country/Year: Germany 1995, 1983
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque

"...As it stands, this is an issue that can be warmly recommended musically and technically without reservation—except perhaps to those who hanker after rich Romantic tone and find the characteristic sound of baroque violins wiry. Even they, however, could not fail to be stirred by the enormous vitality of these performances: the word 'routine' simply doesn't seem to exist in the vocabulary of this splendid team of virtuosi. Its Vivaldi, which brings home the point that the Folies d'Espagne was (as its name implies) originally a frenzied dance, is in itself worth getting the disc for; 'the' Pachelbel canon played in the proper style might wean slush-wallowers away from the soupiness in which it is usually drenched; but the Handel trio sonata (incorporating themes from various stage works) is also a delight; and the glorious sense of controlled freedom which permeates the Bach, meticulously phrased and stylishly ornamented, uplifts the spirit." ~Grammophone
