Gombert, Credo for 8

I think this is outstanding. The choir is well-blended, and the acoustic isn't so reverberant that the details get lost. I suppose purists would prefer one to a part with individual, distinctive voices. But for those who aren't that persnickety, this group is so in sync that they sound like one person.

Tchaikovsky, Violin Concerto


Fricsay with the RIAS Orchestra in 1949. The sound is pretty thin, and the orchestra at times has problems keeping together. Menuhin's violin has a stridency, which may be the fault of the recording. Other than that, it's - well, Menhuin is a skilled player, but overall, there are other recordings of this piece which would probably be a better use of your time. Of course, I could be wrong.
