Quote from: Harry Collier on April 30, 2007, 12:54:19 PMWhat a strange adjective! What is impossible about Klemperer's Mass in B Minor? I personally value it more and more as years go by and slick, shallow readings come and go. Reflect that Klemperer conducted the Mass many, many times over a period of almost 60 years and undoubtedly knew it a lot better and a lot more deeply than you do (it was one of his favourite works). He was also very much in tune with its Germanic roots (which is more than you can say of Joshua Rifkin, for example).

Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 02:00:53 AMOn the first track, the Kyrie eleison, at about 0.40 it starts. If you listen 'beyond' the music you should hear some continuous noise (something which isn't being played). I understand that when it's listened to on a stereo it will be difficult but I am very sure it's there.I don't suppose it's the resultant noise from someone playing their instrument? It's very unlike anything I've heard before.Could there be an error with my recording? I'm pretty sure it isn't - the sound seems to be coming directly from the performance.Update:If you go to 5.30 on the first track and listen carefully for the duration of the quiet section you should hear it. Sorry for bugging people on this topic: I just want to be sure about this.
Quote from: Don Giovanni on May 01, 2007, 03:35:03 AMExactly! Thank you dB. I can't think what instrument it is. Anyway, I might use some of the helpful recommendations from other posters to find another recording. (Since I listen to music always on my mp3 player, I don't think I'll be able to put up with the annoying noise).
