Quote from: MrOsa on May 01, 2007, 03:52:36 AMOK, you actually made me put the CD on. I can hear the sound you mean but it doesn't sound like noise to me - just the ordinary stuff coming from woodwinds (I think it's called "keywork" in English?).
Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 03:35:03 AMExactly! Thank you dB. I can't think what instrument it is.
Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 04:03:19 AMThe noises seem to occur even without the woodwinds and out of time with the music?
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on May 01, 2007, 04:07:17 AMI hear it too. It doesn't sound like any of the usual mechanical noises instruments make. As dB noticed, it also isn't localized. Sometimes it comes from one side, sometimes the middle, sometimes the left. I can't figure it out. It's far more annoying through headphones than speakers though...maybe that's why I never noticed it until you pointed it out. After the first track I think it goes away. I sampled four more tracks and didn't hear anything, not to the extent of the first track anyway.I can't help you with a recommendation for another Mass. I only have two: Gardiner and Klemperer...and you probably won't like old skool Klemp Sarge
Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 03:48:30 AMHow good is Klemperer's recording? From clips that I've heard he seems to take it slowly (unlike Gardiner). What would be a good recording for me to buy?
Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 09:57:02 AMSarge, why do you think I won't like the Klemperer?
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on May 02, 2007, 05:48:35 AMas Harry pointed out, his chorus was still smaller than the norm and certainly the clarity of his Bach is as HIP as anyone's.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 06, 2009, 12:39:04 PMI've recently discovered this ancient CD, which is giving me a lot of pleasure, especially the young Schwarzkopf singing Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen.Highly recommended if you're not allergic.
Quote from: Coopmv on February 06, 2009, 04:52:02 PMI bought this 2-CD set late last year. The duet in the last movement is absolutely the most beautiful singing I have ever heard. While I know the soprano was definitely sung by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, I am not completely sure if the alto was sung by Kathleen Ferrier or Morga Hogggen.
Quote from: knight on February 08, 2009, 06:31:44 AMIf you are referring to the aria that forms part of the full performance; it was Hoffgen, if from the rehearsal extracts, it was Ferrier. The extracts are very special. That B Minor Mass shows Karajan in lean and muscular mood, he energises his way through the piece. The much later St Matthew you admire, is ponderous and overblown. Can you hear the differences in his approach on these two recordings?Mike
Quote from: knight on February 08, 2009, 07:02:38 AMOh.....that looks interesting. I wonder if Karajan is still in B Minor pixie mode for the St M?I am listening to his 1973 re-recording...just got to the 'Geduld'. EEK! Grisly stuff.Mike
Quote from: Que on February 08, 2009, 11:14:47 AMPersonally I wouldn't touch a Von Karajan Matthäus, but that is another matter!
Quote from: Marc on February 08, 2009, 12:02:19 PMWhat about a Karajan B minor Mass?
