Riccardo Chailly continues his traversal of the Mahler symphonic repertory with this uplifting and sensitive account of the Symphony No.4. The Accentus recording team turns in another beautifully executed Blu-ray Disc.
The Bach St. Matthew Passion is given an authentic performance, complete with boys’ choir, in Bach’s own church. Sight and sound are simply awe-inspiring in this Accentus Music 2012 recording.
Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony receives an extra-worldly performance by maestro Riccardo Chailly and his Leipzig Gewandhausorchester. Soloists Oelze and Connolly are marvelous as is the entire audio and video proceedings captured at this international Mahler festival
A titanic rendition of Mahler’s “Symphony of a Thousand” by the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, ably led by Riccardo Chailly with a host of choruses and sturdy soloists. Sight and sound are as good as this work will likely receive in the concert hall.
Bravo to this all-Schumann night of exhilarating performances, but why is this Blu-ray utilizing 48kHz/16-bit PCM audio?
