Quote from: DavidW on November 10, 2010, 05:33:00 AMOh I know that site, they gave a glowing review to one of the entries to the new Herreweghe cycle. You know that I like and no one else on this forum does.
Quote from: Dancing Divertimentian on November 10, 2010, 04:45:45 PMDavid, are you referring to Herreweghe's Bach cantata cycle? If so, I've been very outspoken about its high quality. It's a fave of mine. Jens is a great fan of this cycle as well.

Quote from: DavidW on November 10, 2010, 04:49:05 PMNo I'm talking about his recent Beethoven symphony cycle. His Bach cantata cycle is well regarded everywhere. And you know either Jens or Hurwitz (I get them confused sometimes ) said that Herreweghe had no business conducting Beethoven. I listen to his recordings with the Royal Flemish Orchestra and I think wow! this is exactly what I like.
Quote from: Que on September 18, 2007, 12:07:47 AMKlassik-heute (In German)The German partner site of Classicstoday. Germans turn out to be even less generous with superlatives! So few 10/10's (which is good - it still means something). Various reviewers who IMO occasionally not always have their priorities right - recordings can be marked down because of personal opinions of dogmatic/musicological nature and there is much emphasis on recording quality. Lots of reviews of recordings that are not mainstream: obscure labels, composers, performers etc. Interesting no?
Quote from: Mensch on January 14, 2011, 06:10:30 PMYou know, as a German-born transplant to the US I must say I find this site intolerably bad. US classical music criticism is pretentious enough. The German kind is often execrably worse...
Quote from: ClassicalWeekly on April 02, 2011, 06:40:29 PMCan anyone recommend a good classical music magazine? I used to read Opera News but I'm looking for something more general. I've heard Gramophone is good - but it's also expensive. Thanks in advance.
