User's Review: Great! Superb!  This is one of the most interesting and superbly interpreted recording of the Shostakovitch string quartets. I had the opportunity to listen to the Quatuor Danel in a live recital and I immediately decided to buy their recording the day after. I also spoke with Marc Danel, the first violin, and I was seduced by his sensitivity, his musical intelligence and his sense of humor. They are simply great artists making fine jewels when they are playing.

User's Review (by Hans Bauer): Smetana Bartered Bride  Absolutely fantastic for $9.99 - it is a steal. I recommend it to all classical music lovers. You could not get music like that anywhere cheaper.

User's Review: A matchless voice  I recently stumbled upon Simone Kermes, the acclaimed "Queen of Baroque" (I agree wholeheartedly!) and am utterly enthralled by her pure tone, careful phrasing and precise voice control. There are some lesser known and better known arias here, the common thread being that they were all written for the Italian soprano Francesca Cuzzoni. I can't understand why this album hasn't been reviewed before now! I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves Handel arias; you cannot go wrong purchasing this album... Read more

User's Review: Old but special  This recording, although nearly 65 years old, sounds remarkably well for its age (as I hope I do!). The playing, by the legendary Louis Kaufman may be considered dated by many listeners due to the vibrato used at that time. However I defy anyone to point to a better performance. The No.10 "La Caccia" is my favourite but "Primavera" is also special. I have always been drawn to Gil Shaham's recordings but this recording has become special and although certainly not the first recording of the "Seasons", it was the cause of bringing back to popularity a work which until then was unbelievably neglected...

User's Review (by Vilic): Great Recording  I have been brought up in a musically enriched family. My brother was a singer and we always had all sorts of good music in our home playing. I personally was attracted to classical and Jazz-Pop kind and played accompanying instruments such as drums and bass and also developed good sound taste as well from my child and teenage years. Beside from early age, I started to collect good albums whenever I could afford to buy them. Now for some years as I work with Naxos of Canada I have come to discover ClassicsOnline establishment and what a delight that is... Read more

User's Review: A Masterpiece of French Baroque Music  Marin Marais (1656-1728) is not as well known as his approximate contemporaries Lully and Rameau, but judging by this music, he deserves to. Sémélé is an opera which was first performed in 1709. This album is a suite of orchestral music from the opera, and if you like French Baroque music -- or any Baroque music -- you'll love this...

User's Review (by Jean-Francois Laferte): Superb!  I was listening at my local FM radio station here in Quebec the other night and what a surprise when I heard the first notes of that recording. I have in my personal collection of CD's the Passion of Matthew and John by Phillippe Herreweghe and I was waiting for the "Mark's" version... Read more
