piece to judge. Good reviews though.
With Staatskapelle Dresden, David Robertson conducting. It's from his 2 CD set of 1930s concertos - don't know if it's available for download. It's a very warm and "romantic" reading.
I love Berg, albeit selectively, as does my SO. A fun evening in for us can be watching a blu-ray of Lulu or Wozzek.
Suk/Ancerl/Czech Phil is one of my favorite versions of the Berg Violin Concerto. Not only is it expressively played and conducted, but the sound engineering allows you to hear everything going on in the orchestra quite clearly--I've listened to it along with the score.
I originally bought it on this budget LP (love the cover); now I have the CD, where it's coupled with Suk's Mendelssohn and Bruch concerti:
I haven't heard it, but in the opening passage, the Harp and Clarinets should should be beautiful and rich, tho soft.
The sax shouldn't be annoying...
Can you hear sample tracks?
a few reviewers said Faust's up-front sound robs the music of a bit of atmosphere, but still, I can't think of anything she's done that doesn't make me marvel.
Just in case you're not aware of this, on eClassical you can keep going in 30-second increments (through the end of the track) by clicking the 'play' button.
too, but hard to get a feel for recording quality through earbuds or computer speakers.
