. . . Hamilton Harty Suite from Handel's "Water Music"!
It's simply divine! What was the question again?
Another of the wonderful Mercury recordings
Please do me a favor and read my 2nd post in this string. I would like to know your thoughts on my 3 questions/points.
But you DO know that that will likely provoke one of our periodic free-for-alls wherein everybody gets bent out of shape! ;-)
Most excellent. Looking forward to the chair throwing and bottle breaking. And by all means, don't hold back. Come with full ammo.
My guilty pleasures are orchestral and piano transcriptions of Bach's mostly organ pieces.
Or even this:
"If people don't want to come, nothing will stop them" - Sol Hurok
Get him out of that dry acoustic of the original recording and onto a decent sounding piano too! The Zenph "re-performance" recording is a big improvement IMHO! ;-)
(Although, having said that, I sure wish Zenph would have expended more of their efforts on recordings from back in the 78 rpm era - the further back, the better - which were far more in need of the Zenph treatment. And actually, the '55 Gould Goldbergs weren't THAT bad in terms of SQ. I heard that Zenph ran out of money, but I hope that they'll be able to continue their efforts at some time in the near future, with further commercial releases.)
