Diana Krall: When I Look In Your Eyes      (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  April 5, 2007

Nothing to add to the previous review about the artistic performance, which is always great when DK sings old standards. But the MC sonics are awful: her voice is comming from the five channels instead of the front one(s). Stereo sonics are better, even if they are not the best we can have on jazz ... more
Wölfl: The Symphonies - Pratum Integrum Orchestra          (9 of 9 found this review helpful)
  March 11, 2007

The listening to the music of this contemporary of Beethoven is quite pleasant, if not marked by genius. These are his only two known symphonies, and this is their first ever recording.

OTOH, I sold all my TELARC SACD but 3, as I found them artificial sounding and, most of all, uninteresting musically. You can count my voice as one of ... more

I buy CDs judging only by their content (music, playing, technical quality...) not by their box. I indeed prefer standard boxes, as they are way easier to replace when broken than sacd's box or digipack. I hope that by discarding the sacd boxes, you'll be able to produce every new release on sacd. ... more

This is not the orchestral version that you might be acustomed to. The choir and the beautiful voice of Miah Persson are accompagnied only by an organ. However I do like this version a lot and the sound is very good (as usual with Bis). ... more
