Here's David Hurwitz's enthusiastic presentation on Einar Englund:

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).

Am enjoying Englund's Symphony No.2 'The Blackbird' which is my favourite:
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

I have the Ondine disc of Piano Concertos 1 and 2 plus Epinikia in shink wraps waiting for the proper moment...

How can some people be that good in expressing strong enthusiasm without being preachy?

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

That's a nice disc 71 dB. I like both the concertos but Epinikia most of all. Hope the shrink wrap comes off soon!  :)

The disc is part of my latest JPC order and the other four discs are also still in shrink wraps. I am in no hurry with them and it's nice to have "new" discs for the right moment that feel right. That way I hopefully buy less and save money. The discovery of Haydn's Op. 20 sidetracked me from the Englund track...  ;D
