BACH, J.S.: Organ Concerto Transcriptions (Lippincott)

G-49275
User's Review: Amazing Organ Playing  I have heard about the abilities of Joan Lippincott, but in this recording she comes across as a performer in full and complete control of her instrument. These are not simple throw-away pieces… far from it. The program consists of transcriptions of concertos written for instruments other than the organ, but under Bach’s incredibly capable pen you would never know it. Being Bach, it takes the pieces and enhances them in ways the original composers would have likely found astonishing – case in point, “Concerto in G Major, BWV 592” originally written by Johann Ernst for Violin, Strings, and Continuo...

User's Review: Mysticism and Modernism  Adventurous programmes and amazing technique are the hallmarks of Jenny Lin's recordings over the past decade. I really sat up and took notice when Haenssler Classic released her Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues in 2009. This was a fresh take on some of my favourite music; an outstanding disc with depth as well as fireworks... Read more

ELGAR, E.: Sea Pictures / Symphony No. 1 (Baker, London Philharmonic, Handley)

LPO-0046
User's Review: Excellent Live Recording of a Classic Elgar Symphony  The London Philharmonic is in superb form under the direction of English music specialist Vernon Handley. Dame Janet Baker (contralto) is excellent in Elgar's Sea Pictures, an interesting addition to any collection. But, let's be honest here, the main reason for this disc is for Elgar's great Symphony #1. The LPO does not disappoint. While the recording is a bit distant for my taste (as if recorded from the back of the concert hall), it is a live recording, so the recording can be forgiven. This is not to say that the record lacks clarity, it is still vibrant... Read more

User's Review: Great Playing  This is a charming, exhilarating disc with two fascinating discoveries among the six selections included: the evocative, nocturnal hued Barcarolle venitienne and Muineiras with its drone effects and additional violin part (played by the soloist). Tianwa Yang plays with great feeling and style not to mention an assured, elegant technique. She is matched measure for measure with tight, robust support provided by conductor, Ernest Martinez Izquierdo and his crackerjack ensemble, Orquesta Sinfonica de Navarra... Read more

User's Review (by MW Morse): Magnificent document  This recording is several things at once: a portrait of one of the great violinists of the century, Rudolf Kolisch; a rich glimpse into the performing traditions of modern music; a fine overview of the chamber music of the second Vienna school, and of Arnold Schoenberg as a composer. For me, its greatest joy is as music. The performances here are uniformly first-rate. The recording quality ranges from passable (the first two Schoenberg quartets) to decent (Lyric Suite) to fairly good (the Pro Arte version of Quartet No. 3)... Read more

User's Review: Van Bloss - Bach  An astounding performance from a true artist. Van Bloss lets us be part of the taming of the energies within, to suit the delicately structured force that are the Goldberg Variations by JS Bach, and he does so like no one else. This is a very inspirational album that I sincerely recommend.

User's Review: Cziffra a genius  It's gratifying to hear this type of music, the great pianist Cziffra plays this music in fantastic form. Liszt is very difficult but this pianist makes these pieces easy. Hear it and enjoy it.
