2L delivers yet another state-of-the-art recording with these mostly lesser known pieces, but no less worthy pieces.
Andris Nelsons and the Royal Concertgebouw give a definitive reading of Shostakovich’s 8th Symphony, a neglected 20th century masterpiece. More familiar fare, Wagner’s Rienzi Overture, and Strauss’s Dance of the Seven Veils fill out a terrific program from the 2011 Lucerne Festival.
Fellini, Jazz & Co. is a delightful hour and a half of varied musical fare from Shostakovich to Rota. The atmosphere of an outdoor concert is well captured by video and audio engineers.
Beautifully recorded music played with authority mark label AIX’s entrance into the multichannel Blu-ray arena.
