    Default Compare these two interpretations.

    I'm surprised how completely different these sound, I much prefer the first, I'd be interested in others' views, and why you prefer one or the other.

    The work is John Stanley's organ Concerto Op2 No3

    The 2 versions do sound quite different, and I easily prefer the 2nd. It has more edge and detail. The Hyperion version has a muddy and homogenized sound; also, the performance is rather somber.

    In conclusion, the 2nd version pierces my body; the Hyperion just bounces off.

    I also prefer the second recording. The texture is more transparent (mostly due to the sound of the organ) the tempo somewhat quicker, and overall it has a lighter effect - which is more pleasing to me.
