Johann Sebastian Bach - Calefax Reed Quintet - Die Kunst der Fuge BWV 1080

Label/Cat#: MDG "Scene" # 619 0989-2 | Country/Year: Germany 2000
Genre: Classical | Style: Baroque, Reed Instruments

"The Dutch quintet plays DKdF in the saxophonist’s Raaf Hekkema’s arrangement for ten different reed instruments: oboe, oboe d’amore, english horn, saxophones, clarinets, basset horn and bassoon. Amazing enough, this recording on modern reed instruments sounds more “baroque” (and sometimes “renaissancy”) than many others, regarding the tone of certain instruments - oboe d’amore, bassoon etc. (...) Recommendation: Satisfaction guaranteed for many a different musical taste. ~dkdf.net

Olafur Arnalds, Alice Sara Ott - The Chopin Project (2015)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 201 MB | MP3 320Kbps CBR | 114 MB | 1 CD | Full Scans
Genre: Classical | Label: Mercury | Catalog Number: 002276702

Award-winning young Icelandic pop/classical musician Olafur Arnalds uses a radical new approach to recording the music of Chopin. Arnalds developed an intimate, fragile and often charmingly imperfect sound using old/unusual/altered pianos captured on vintage recording equipment and various mixing techniques to re-enforce feelings of solitude or loneliness, and to create dreamlike ambient soundscapes. Pianist Alice Sara Ott joins and Olafur has composed new works to link the album together.

Trio Mediaeval - A Worcester Ladymass (2011) {ECM 2166}
EAC 1.0b2 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 382MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Classical, Choral

On their fifth ECM New Series album, Anna Maria Friman, Linn Andrea Fuglseth and Torunn Østrem Ossum present a reconstruction of a 13th century votive Mass to the Virgin Mary, based on manuscripts and fragments originating in an English Benedictine Abbey. As Nicky Losseff, the trio’s medieval music editor, explains in the liner notes, “complex polyphonic music was important to the monks who lived at the Abbey of St Mary's, Worcester. Polyphony gave life to the otherwise ‘plain’ song of the liturgy. At Worcester, an unusual number of single leaves and fragments have survived.

Johann Nepomuk Hummel - Trio Parnassus - Complete Piano Trios
2xCD | EAC+LOG+CUE | APE: 435 MB | Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: MDG "Gold" # 303 0307-2 | Country/Year: Germany 199_, 1989
Genre: Classical | Style: Viennese School, Piano

"...In conclusion, this is a splendid set covering some of Hummel's most rewarding music in performances that cannot be improved upon. Although there are a few other Hummel recordings that are mighty fine, the 'best of Hummel' is to be found in this MDG set and the Chandos piano concerto disc featuring Stephen Hough. With such wonderful performances, Hummel becomes a worthy alternative to Haydn, Mozart and early Beethoven. The MDG is an essential set worth every penny of its premium price." ~musicweb-international

Bizet - Carmen (James Levine, Agnes Baltsa, José Carreras, Samuel Ramey) [2000 / 1988]
NTSC 4:3 (720x480) VBR | Francais (LinearPCM, 2 ch) | 7.25 Gb (DVD9)
Classical | Label: Deutsche Grammophon | Sub: Francais, English, Deutsch, Italiano, Espanol, Chinese | +3% Recovery | 172 min

This outstanding work is given no better a performance than here from the principles and the fine Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus. The role of Carmen is sung with a fiery passion by the very powerful mezzo of Agnes Baltsa. Her interaction with Carreras is emotionally powerful as well as musically satisfying. Special mention must be given to the wonderful interpretation of the role of Don Jose by Carreras- the best interpretation available in audio today( note the brilliant recording with Karajan)...

Meredith Monk - Songs Of Ascension (2011) {ECM 2154}
EAC 1.0b2 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 600dpi | 348MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Classical, Experimental, Avant-Garde

“Songs of Ascension” is a major new recording from composer Meredith Monk and her vocal ensemble. Written in 2008, it is conceived as a continuous composition, a departure from Monk’s earlier collaged or episodic extended works. In recent years Meredith Monk’s been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and string quartet. On “Songs of Ascension” she teams up with a string quartet of New York players well versed in new music. With winds, percussion and two vocal groups added to her already extraordinary singers, this is one of Monk’s most musically ambitious ventures. Voices and instruments are paired and balanced against each other to an extent rare in her music.

Shura Cherkassky plays Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Stravinsky (2011)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 337 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 191 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical | Label: Ica Classics | # ICAC 5020 | Time: 01:16:28

Shura Cherkassky (1909-1995) was one of the greatest piano virtuosos of his time having studied under the legendary Josef Hofmann. This WDR studio broadcast sourced from the original master tapes has Cherkassky playing Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini from 1970 in superb stereo. He recorded the Rhapsody only once in 1953 for EMI in mono but it has never been issued on CD so this taping is exceptionally important and adds a major work to Cherkassky’s large discography. Prokofiev’s wartime Piano Sonata No.7 was never recorded commercially by Cherkassky so this is another addition to his discography sourced from WDR’s original master tapes. It was recorded in 1951 when Cherkassky was fast becoming a star in Germany. The three scenes from Stravinsky’s Petruschka was a favourite virtuoso work for Cherkassky and this 1951 recording shows him at his most brilliant, sourced from WDR’s original master tapes. Three encores have been added from 1951 and 1953 (not sourced from WDR) which again showcase Cherkassky’s incredible technique during the early period of his career in Germany.

EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 319 MB | MP3 320Kbps CBR | 164 MB | 1 CD | Full Scans
Genre: Classical | Label: Warner Classics | Catalog Number: 632791

Aurora Orchestra, together with conductor Nicholas Collon, is an innovative, energetic and talented ensemble. It has already amassed a good amount of praise from the critics, quickly establishing itself as the most significant new British chamber orchestra in a generation. Collon by himself is also making waves, increasingly in demand as a guest conductor in the UK and abroad. This album features a straightforwardly American repertoire selection, interspersing the core repertoire with some beautifully arranged folk/pop songs inspired by the theme.
