- How about a survey?
Everybody puts up their list of the
fifteen best sounding recordings
they have heard?
I would be really interested to see this.
Any takers? We could put together
a joint top recordings ever....
we have done such lists informally in the
past and of course I and some others
have made a number of specific recordings
(probably everybody already has an idea
of what would be on my list so I might
do mine at the end instead of the beginning).
Let's do it! I think this would be
realy helpful to people looking for good
stuff sonically to listen to.
- I'll venture out there with this title, the Salon Orchestra of Belvedere (Weimar) on the Obligat label:
Better photo of cover art here:
Charming salon music played competently though not expertly by a string quartet plus double bass and piano(s). This recording is up close and vivid, which I don't usually like in chamber music recordings. But there is something peculiarly, hypnotically lifelike about it, all the same. I would be curious to hear what the recording technique experts here think of it. If you say it was obviously made with three dozen omnis spaced ten leagues apart, well, I guess I'll go back to adjusting my stereo!
