Quote from: absolutelybaching on March 11, 2023, 12:34:33 PMTwo of my favourites.The Grimes, because it's misty, moody and very evocative.The Wingrave, because it sets the scene in a country house, is very 1970s, and is a John Piper.
Quote from: JBS on March 06, 2023, 05:51:48 PMThe Giltburg/Petrenko LvB PC 3 & 4 CD I ordered last week landed today and I discovered it (and it seems, the other two CDs in the seried) uses a different cover image than the standard soloist-and-conductor-together image used for the listings at Amazon, Presto, etc.The image on my copy is a mountain landscape photo attributed to Giltburg himself.I don't see it on the web now, but I did find this one for PCs 1 & 2.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on March 11, 2023, 01:30:30 PMHadn't heard of John Piper before now. Interesting to read a bit about him on Wiki. Appears to have been a multi-talented artist. Do you have any of his prints?PD
Quote from: 71 dB on March 12, 2023, 01:33:50 AMI hate how Naxos does these cover arts that are not the original "white" ones. They are not very good at them and against the initial style. It is like selling out, selling your soul and identity. I wish they had continued doing the classic style (yes, it is classical music, so classic cover art is proper!). The classic early style had the composer name on golden bold Times New Roman (I believe) font all capital.
Quote from: KevinP on February 11, 2023, 02:37:05 PMThe Dorati cover doesn't do much for me; however, I really like the Naxos and think it's hurt by the Naxos design, i.e., occupying less than half of a CD cover. If I had that painting as a full-sized LP cover, I might hang it on my wall.(Not sure it actually says, 'Bartok' to me, but that's another matter.)Anybody know the painter?

Quote from: DavidW on March 13, 2023, 10:17:57 AMEverything on this album just blew me away! The playing is dynamite. This is a keeper! I'll have to listen to Faust on A Soldier's Tale. These might be purchases. Funny enough this represents a period performance.

Quote from: Brian on March 18, 2023, 06:48:05 AMDuring the "4D" era in the early 1990s, someone at Deutsche Grammophon really cared about cover art and selected some of the most consistently striking images any label has done (in my opinion). I know some are reproductions of pre-existing art, but at least a few of them are originals commissioned by the label.
