Quote from: Brian on August 19, 2023, 06:10:01 PMFor the people with the recent Badura Skoda and Festetics reissue boxes from Arcana: what's the presentation like? How much or little is the booklet? What's on the album sleeves if anything? Is it a good or cheap looking product?
Quote from: Zauberschloss on August 20, 2023, 05:17:16 AMBadura-Skoda's Beethoven Piano Sonata cycle has one of the best booklets I have seen in a reissue box. It goes into great detail about all the pianos used for the recordings with photos of them.
Quote from: Madiel on September 02, 2023, 03:37:50 AMI'm wondering if anyone has/knows either of these versions of the Mendelssohn sacred choral music (Bernius conducting):The musical contents are mostly the same, with the magenta version adding the Oratorios which are not in the blue version (first time around they were put in a separate 4-CD box).What I'm wondering about, though, is texts. There is some evidence suggesting that the blue box contains the texts of the work but that the magenta one doesn't, only having some writing about the works. Can anyone confirm in either case?Also, I'm not sure whether we are talking about a physical booklet in either case, or just a PDF.
Quote from: Papy Oli on September 02, 2023, 04:43:34 AMThe Presto streamer has both boxsets and some PDF for both as well. The 14-CD PDF has only writing about the works in various languages, No lyrics.The 10-CD PDF has only contents of the CD's, no writings, no lyrics. edit: scrap that, Presto has a second entry of the 10-CD set. this time with PDF with writings, still no lyrics.
Quote from: Madiel on September 02, 2023, 04:47:00 AMI can find PDFs for both online (using a different service, Naxos). The 10-CD one I can find does have lyrics.But I'm asking about the physical boxes. Because I'm not going to assume what I might find there.
Quote from: Papy Oli on September 02, 2023, 04:51:31 AMOk, the Carus website is not much help either in terms of contents. Maybe drop them a line?
Quote from: Madiel on September 02, 2023, 04:56:25 AMI have done that. Hopefully they respond, I think there's a fair chance. But I thought maybe someone around here has already purchased.I guess sacred choral works are a bit niche, but as I went through Mendelssohn's catalogue some of these were amongst the works that impressed me the most. That's not something I would have expected!
Quote from: Papy Oli on September 02, 2023, 05:05:43 AMWhich works have impressed you ?
Quote from: Madiel on September 02, 2023, 05:35:55 AMI'm fairly sure it was the Psalm settings that surprised me. So Psalm 115 (op.31), Psalm 42 (op.42), Psalm 95 (op.46) and Psalm 114 (op.51).
Quote from: Mandryka on October 18, 2023, 10:31:42 PMCan anyone advise me about the easiest way to buy this shipped to the UK? I think I must have it..https://www.peterwaldner.at/cds.html
Quote from: premont on October 19, 2023, 03:07:17 AMYou can write to him directly on his home page and ask. I think I am going myself to contact him, since many of his own label releases seems most interesting.
Quote from: brewski on October 20, 2023, 07:53:44 AMI don't often buy CDs these days, but this box of Deutsche Grammophon's Avant Garde series was just released in August, and already sold out. (I see copies available elsewhere.) Many of these recordings, on LP, were a crucial part of my early classical music listening.21 CDs! https://store.deutschegrammophon.com/p51-i0028948356775/various-artists/the-avantgarde-series/index.html-Bruce
Quote from: Anooj on October 24, 2023, 03:24:41 AMAny opinions on this set? How does it compare with other cycles or recordings of this material? Is this music consistently strong enough to have this much of it?
