    I hope DG produces another run of their B-rA special edition of the whole Ring cycle, on only one B-rA disc. I don't fancy buying them all separately with a bajillion CDs I do not need. I missed it when it was available last year. Stupid me.

    Don't knock yourself - it took me a while to realize that these days, any release on physical media is bound to be limited - it used to be that I never complained about prices... because I am used to, no matter how big the box, etc, to just save and buy anything that I liked...not anymore... by the time you save, releases are gone - if you see something, need to jump on it. Made the mistake of waiting with the Bruno Walter Complete Columbia box - now is only available from 3rd party sellers, for quite a lot more than the retail price... ugh...

    maybe need to start a big box savings account and let it build, and reserve for those kind of releases, in order to be able to jump on them immediately... hrm.. yeah... maybe I will do that, now that I think about it...

    Regarding the Steinberg Beethoven symphony set on DG:

    Quote Originally Posted by Merl View Post
    It's a very good set but I'm dubious about the source. When these were put out a few years ago, licensed to the Command label, they were just remasters of LP rips as there were rumours that the master tapes had been lost or were unavailable. Then the recordings were available for some time from Highdeftransfers as freebies and were open source and they said had tdone it from the original tapes. Now they're repackaging under the DG label? I'm intrigued. Reading the blurb, It says on the DG release sheet that they're remastered from the old 35mm Everest tapes. If these have been successfully transferred then we are in for a treat as there are some really good performances in here and a rare outing of the Mahler orchestrated Beethoven 9th. Steinberg was a big fan of that version for performance and it doesnt disappoint. This set isn't for the faint-hearted. Really looking forward to this one myself as the transfers I have are not sonically good (the old Command Classics CDs). Also raises an interesting question - if DG has Everest's back catalogue then there could be some other gems coming our way in the next few years.
    There are a couple of tracks available for preview on Spotify if you'd like to listen. They sound pretty good to me. Some tape hiss in the quieter sections, but generally pretty clean, if not a very inspiring remaster.

    I wouldn't trust anything about the quality from the remaster based on Spotify alone.

    thnx!

    The digital masters used for the Kleiber Complete DG edition BRA were all reissues. Someveven 15 years old.

    This is brand new, and 192k.

    I was very disappointed with the last BRA. Hope this one is much better.

    And based on the recent similar release of an updated 192k master of Die Fledermaus eager anticipation is justified.

    Oh nice - thanks - I just recently acquired the Japanese SACD for Freischuetz - that is satisfying, but those 2CD + BR have been pretty inexpensive, around $25, a little more a little less - will definitely go for it

    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.
