    Sticking with streaming,

    Dvořák, Symphony No 9 - NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, Krzysztof Urbański.

    A very impressive New World from Urbański - suitably gentle and affectionate in the Largo but offering an otherwise strong performance that doesn't lack forward momentum without ever sounding rushed. Great to hear a fresh take on a old warhorse, but one that doesn't deconstruct the piece for the sake of being different - very enjoyable.

    Give it a listen later- Alpha puts out good stuff and if the 9th is a warhorse, it's a great warhorse.

    Just received this today.
    Listened to the first 3 discs so far and love it.
    It's a beautiful set.
    I will post a full, detailed review later.
    Recommended to all Walter fans.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    More DSCH, the String Quartet No. 6. This has one of those amazing Shostakovich Lento movements, this time with lots of counterpoint, even a fugue. I've long loved the Pacific Quartet in this music, but I'm falling for the Mandelring. They clarify the music and play with great feeling. Audite's spectacular recording puts each instrument in it's proper space and thus makes it possible to follow and understand the interplay of instruments as I've neve heard before.

    Richard Wagner - Die Walkure, Act III 71 minutes
    Vienna Philharmonic, Georg Solti, recorded 1957 Decca Legends remaster 96 kHz/24 bit

    Kirsten Flagsted - Brunnhilde
    Otto Edelmann - Wotan
    UA

    This is a simply astounding performance. Flagsted for me, even surpasses Birgit Nilsson and Otto Edelmann is a powerful and authoritative Wotan.

    Solti is arguably on finer form than when he came to record this opera in 1966 as part of his historic Ring traversal.

    The 1957 sound quality is of demonstration quality - testament to John Culshaw's Brilliance (not forgetting James Brown's engineering and Erik Smith, co-producer}

    Leoš Janáček: String Quartets No. 1 "Kreutzer Sonata" & No. 2 "Intimate Letters"
    Leipziger Streichquartett

    ETA: It amuses me that on the booklet cover someone misspelled Janáček's name. It's proper everywhere else, except in the English translation of the notes, where it's borked again. Regardless, I love these performances and the recording is amazing.



    More Janáček: The Ballad of Blaník, The Fiddler's Child*
