Mozart - 3 Piano Concerti "A quattro" K.413, 414, 415          (2 of 7 found this review helpful)
  December 13, 2013

This has to be one of the best sound recordings of these works I know. The instruments are recorded rather closely, which gives great warmth and depth to the sound stage. I found myself continually being drawn in to the performances.
Mahler: Symphony No. 7 - Klemperer        (5 of 10 found this review helpful)
  March 13, 2012

I have not yet purchased this SACD because of its exorbitant price, but hope to in the future.

Povee Chan has done a splendid job remastering these sides, and in so doing retrieves natural and warm sound from these not-so-new recordings. No exaggerations, no thumping bass, no earth-shattering surround, but ... more

I just reviewed for the ARSC Journal Judy Garland's 1955 mono LP, Miss Show Business, that has now been restored by Robert Vosgien, Senior Mastering Engineer at Capitol Studios,and made available in downloadable high resolution.

I would also recommend this Mozart set. If you are looking for an intimate sound, this is not the set for you. This is still great chamber music, and the cathedral acoustic does not detract from the fine sound recording and excellent interpretation. ... more
