This is a superb recording, indeed. Playing this at near-reference levels sends vibrations up the spine, although it suffers from some almost sub-sonic LFE "hum" right around the 20hz mark all throughout the recording when played at such levels, even the tracks that don't include the massive organ.And add to those this superbly recorded gem from Reference Recordings:
After they shipped on June 30th, I received these two titles today, in perfect condition. Can't wait to give them a listen!Just saw these, excellent news!
I'm personally very excited for another full opera release, so Die tote Stadt had to be mine. I have yet to buy La bohème (it was in my cart when I logged in) but as funds are tight, I opted only for the new Korngold release, which is a blind buy for me.
Then, it was a matter of which other title to get for an even number of ordered items, and it was between the Stravinsky and the Ormandy discs. In the end, I chose the Stravinsky, again a blind buy, though of course, I've heard both pieces by others before.
Can't wait to get the discs.
