Quote from: Zizekian on July 03, 2012, 06:09:38 PMHow accurate does everyone find the classical music review section on the NPR Music website? I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to purchasing classical music (well, as a more discriminating consumer and not just buying box sets from the bargain bins!).
Quote from: North Star on July 04, 2012, 02:39:40 AMI have no idea of NPR, but I recommend asking here on the 'Recordings you are considering' thread (and searching for earlier discussions), and reading Amazon reviews, although most of them are worthless, some are very knowledgeable reviewers (it's awful if Giordano Bruno quit permanently).
Quote from: eyeresist on July 04, 2012, 06:33:16 PMI don't know that "accuracy" enters into the matter, beyond getting the name of the piece right and being able to tell if the musicians are in tune. The rest is a matter of personal taste, so the trick is to find critics whose taste complements your own.

Quote from: Brian on April 11, 2023, 08:06:30 PMThank you for writing this and providing the link! It was excellent work, very clear and helpful and just enough wit. It gave me a number of hot leads of things I want to listen to (if that disc with JJ Johnson and Miles Davis is not streaming, I may finally purchase the box entire). Some of the recommendations of obscure repertoire like Riegger are so strong, I will even overlook the slander of my friend Grieg.
