Quote from: Lethe on December 03, 2007, 01:22:07 PMCan anyone recommend two recordings - one using a (relatively) high amount of repeats, and the other using a low amount? I am not familiar enough with the piece to be aware of any real differences.
Quote from: Drasko on December 03, 2007, 01:25:17 PMAny opinions on differences between Scott Ross (Erato) & Scott Ross (EMI/Virgin).I'm thinking getting one of them, but which?thanks
Quote from: Don on December 03, 2007, 01:54:14 PMHigh amount - Tureck.Low amount - Leonhardt.
Quote from: Lethe on December 03, 2007, 02:03:56 PMThank you Only one to buy - I have and enjoy the Leonhardt on Vanguard.
Quote from: AnthonyAthletic on December 03, 2007, 02:11:53 PMHaven't heard the 1959 version or seen it available over here (not looked too hard to find it) but in general surfing I haven't come across it.
Quote from: AnthonyAthletic on December 03, 2007, 02:11:53 PM Yes, the Leonhardt Vanguard Historic recording is superb. The State of Wonder set by Gould is a fine one to have, I prefer his 1981 version with the repeats over the '55. The set also includes a 1 hour + conversation which is essential if you are getting to know the works. I am not a total GG supporter but there's no complaints in his Goldberg's or Bach in general IMO.Haven't heard the 1959 version or seen it available over here (not looked too hard to find it) but in general surfing I haven't come across it.

Quote from: Don on December 03, 2007, 02:17:43 PMYou're in England, right? Well, Amazon UK has it readily available.
Quote from: AnthonyAthletic on December 03, 2007, 02:22:09 PMGot it, thanks to Drasko's link. Caiman USA (who have always delivered) are about to do so again Now we need to dig out the WTC topic, sadly I didn't take to the GG recording of these masterpieces but am quite content with Tureck (mono) DG & Richter's RCA set, which does sound distant and slightly muffled in the recording.
Quote from: Mark on December 03, 2007, 11:07:30 AMI kid you not. Don loves Bach. The Goldberg Variations especially. 0:)
Quote from: Muriel on December 03, 2007, 03:46:31 PM Hey Mark,do you think Don might enjoy Handel's Chaconne in G Major HWV 435?
Quote from: karlhenning on December 03, 2007, 11:23:16 AMAnd Don never sleeps to the Goldbergs $:)You misspeak a bit. This is not 'music intended to induce sleep'; this is music to listen to if you find that you cannot sleep. There is a difference
Quote from: Don on December 03, 2007, 01:56:26 PMSorry, but I never heard the Erato version.
Quote from: Que on December 03, 2007, 05:54:48 PMSo, I have a Goldbergs recording you don't have.... Amazing! Q
Quote from: 12tone. on December 03, 2007, 04:54:53 PMExcept that when one listens to a piece, whilst being 'not able to sleep', to actually get to sleep!
Quote from: Don on December 03, 2007, 01:51:25 PMYes, Sony "06" as long as folks know that's it's simply the Gould "55" all gussied up to not sound like an historical recording. Personally, I think it's only part Gould. Let's face it - this tinkering around with the sound takes some of the fizz out of the performance.
Quote from: 71 dB on December 04, 2007, 05:38:07 AMYes, it's Gould "55" but with sound quality of today. It's as if Gould was born 50 years later and recorded the work last year. All recordings are tinkering, this is just high-tech tinkering. Nothing relavant is taken away, only irrelevant noise.
