Quote from: Sorin Eushayson on February 08, 2009, 05:23:24 PMGardiner's is good. Really good. Whenever I hear a new Mass in B Minor recording I compare it to his. Suzuki has an excellent recording out as well, better in technical quality than Gardiner's, but seeming somehow disconnected from the music. Herreweghe's also came across as disconnected, a little distant and quiet for some reason; subdued. Haven't heard Harnoncourt's or Leonhardt's, are there samples available somewhere? I'm always up for more of this magnificent mass!

Quote from: Sorin Eushayson on February 16, 2009, 06:41:15 PMOrdered!You planted the seed of curiosity in my mind, Q! Thanks for the recommendation. I saw there were two issues, so I ordered the cooler-looking one in the red case. I'll let you know what I think when it arrives...
Quote from: Que on February 08, 2009, 05:28:38 PMHaroncourt is a bit dissapointing IMO, Leonhardt is a fine performance but try Thomas Hengelbrock (DHM)! Q
Quote from: Que on February 17, 2009, 11:15:08 PMHa! Well, I'lll interested to hear your opinion on this one. Ultra clear and transparent in the choral lines, with a strong pulse - speedy faster movements but the slower movements are decidely unhurried. Lots of character and emotion but not overbearing or indulgent and not mechanical.

Quote from: masolino on June 11, 2009, 11:02:23 PMNot me, I guess - I have already had the new Minkowski recording (above). The musicweb critic doesn't seem to be aware of the Naive, so a direct comparison is not present in his article. In general, though, I have found Kuijken to sound bloodless when compared to Minkowski, and I don't really need another Junghanel-style OVPP Mass in b minor that soon.
Quote from: Antoine Marchand on June 11, 2009, 11:40:20 PMMinkowski as preferable to Kuijken? In Bach's music? Not in Handel's music, but in Bach? It is hard to accept, Masolino, especially when I have listened to some excerpts on the web. Kuijken is certainly in my shopping cart and not simply as a new Junghänel.
