Beethoven / Haydn / The Heifetz - Piatigorsky Concerts

  (Item #: beethheife_2770_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This is a lovely sounding Red Seal pressing of cello and violin, with smooth, natural, tonally correct sound and correctly sized instruments, something you don't much on recordings of Heifetz, which tend to have huge violins and small orchestras. In these chamber works perhaps the engineers had an easier time of getting it right. The sound is transparent, spacious and three-dimensional in the best Living Stereo tradition.

If you love the sound of the violin and cello, played by virtuosos of the highest order, this is the record for you!

Haydn / Cello Concertos in D & C / Rostropovitch

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: haydncello_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This is a Minty 1976 EMI British Import LP with very good sound and ENCHANTING music. The vinyl is very quiet. Haydn’s cello concertos are engaging and relaxing at the same time. The sound is quite good for EMI -- it seems to fit this music perfectly (although more top end would have been nice). The tone of the cello is exquisite.

Haydn / Symphonies 100 & 101

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: haydnsym100_vanguard_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The New York Times review for these performances called them "matchless" and we see no reason to disagree! With Super Hot Stamper sound for No. 100, "Military", we're confident you will have a very hard time finding better sound and music from Haydn than is found on this original Black Label Vanguard Stereophonic Demonstration Disc.

Haydn / Symphonies 59 & 81

The Best on Record

  (Item #: haydnsymph59_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

These are THE BEST HAYDN SYMPHONIES I have ever heard on disc. Folks, until I heard Dorati and the Festival Chamber Orchestra perform these pieces I never knew there could be this much FIRE in Haydn's music. (Please excuse the pun; the 59th Symphony is entitled "Fire".)

Mercury bring the kind of recording energy and presence to this music that I have frankly never heard before. Credit must go to both Dorati and his players.

Haydn / Symphonies No. 22 & 90 / Ansermet

Reviewed in 2012

  (Item #: haydnsym22_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

Nearly White Hot Stamper sound (A++ to A+++) for side one of this early British Stereo Treasury pressing, which should not come as too much of a shock -- this is after all a vintage Golden Age performance by Ansermet and L'Orchestre de La Suisse Romande, a 1966 recording from the glorious Victoria hall in which so many of our favorite recordings were committed to analog tape through the all-tube chain Decca had perfected.

Haydn / Symphonies No. 89 & 90 / Somogyi

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: haydnsym89_westminster_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This White Hot Stamper side two (Symphony 90) is some of the BEST SOUND we have ever heard for any Haydn Symphony, and recently we heard some awfully good ones such as those performed by Dorati for Mercury. I rank these performances right up there with Dorati's, and on this side two I would have to say that the sound found on this early Westminster pressing (WST 17043) is EVEN BETTER than the sound of that Hot Stamper Merc. This pressing is nothing short of SUPERB in every way. Who knew?

Haydn / The Surprise Symphony / Fjeldstad

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: haydnsurpr_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This vintage RCA Living Stereo Camden LP has Super Hot Stamper sound on both sides. It's one of the best Camdens, if not actually THE best. In true Living Stereo fashion, a natural, realistic concert hall perspective unfolds before you. As we noted about side one: it's rich, smooth, sweet and tubey -- what's not to like? Lovely sheen on the strings too. This is our kind of sound!

Mark Levinson - Acoustic Recording Series, Volume 2

Reviewed in 2008

  (Item #: ravelvalse_levinson_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

The sound on the record is excellent. It was engineered by Mark Levinson, on special equipment designed to create virtually noiseless ultra-low-distortion master tapes, without noise-reduction systems. It’s mastered by Robert Ludwig.

The first side contains Ravel’s Valses Nobles et Sentimentales played on the piano by Lois Shapiro. Side two contains her performance of Haydn’s Sonata No. 49.
