Bought the download file 3 days ago and yet the deal is still under "processing"!  
 
The server hanged soonest payment was made. This problem has persisted ever since 2013 year end. Despite several email exchanges and numerous promises from Universal to have the problem fixed, the bug just remained, warm and comfortable in her lair.  
 
Isn't that British humanity to save the endangered species?

May be that was another joint venture, rather common in those days. Richard Mohr was the producer who overlooked everything. The recording was actually done by Lewis Layton, the balance engineer.  
 
Recording quality shouldn't be bad when Lewis Layton was at the console.

I thought the Solti, Price recording only available from Living Stereo! Didn't know its also under Decca. The booklet from my Living Stereo box set says that the recording was by Richard Mohr. A good recording?

If no one has got this in CD, I'll have to get the download from Universal. Perhaps this piece has never been issued in CD. Well, I may miss the pops and clicks though!

' Any idea which is better, Karajan or Solti? '  
_______________________________________________________  
 
I do not have the Solti's version, but according to the critics, if you are allowed only one copy of Aida, Karajan/ Tebaldi is the one. It is a classic produced by John Culshaw.

Oh yes, Verdi Requiem by Solti was a must back in the heyday. Absolutely stupendous!  
 
I have the Requiem in both LP and CD but the CD is half a mile behind.

I have the LP too except it is a Dutch pressing, ought to be a far cry from the original.  
 
I am looking for the CD so as to strength my CAS collection. Stupid aspiration notwithstanding, I have the ambition to build up a computerized repertoire consisting of nothing but best of the best. It is certainly far easier to achieve than to have a comparable collection with LPs.

Decca has offered the Karajan Aida download at around 150 bucks HKG. I had it in the shopping basket already. The recording was made by Gordon Parry, a sure ticket to top-notch recording quality. But then flac file download may not always be superior to CD depending possibly on the conversion process.

For Verdi's Aida my favourite is that by Karajan. A Decca recording made in 1959 featuring the then golden trio of Karajan, Renata Tebaldi and Carlos Bergonzi. The quality of the recording also matches that of the star studded cast. The dynamics of the Grand March is simply stunning.  
Another Verdi's work that can show off your high end system is his Requiem, especially the version by Solti, another Decca recording that can be included into The Absolute Sound (TAS) & Stereophiles 以外推薦的天碟級靚錄音 list.

Silly bobui! Should be a total of 4 Lps, 8 sides. Look like I need more than a bottle to keep me on the sofa for the afternoon session lor!  
 
EMI ASD 307 - 310. 1958 recording with Boris Christoff ( the best bass), Victoria DL Angeles and conducted by Andre Cluytens with the Theatre National De L Opera. Sung in French  
 
The best recording and performance of Faust. Right? Get a copy even if it has to be on CD or download!

While most people would listen to Carmen as a matter of course, don't forget to try Faust as well. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

Cycle up Tai Mo Shan this morning. Home in the afternoon to listen to new recording from Yundi Li Beethoven Emperor on my yester-year classic CD player combo, the Meridian 602/606. A perfect fit for piano works.  
 
Yundi Li - A very different interpretation than most I've experienced. OK la! Adagio very touching. Allegro and Rondo lacking a bit of spark for me! Worth exploring!

Yundi Li has released a new recording in March/April 2014.  
 
Title: Emperor / Fantasy  
Schumann: Fantasie in C  
Beethoven: Piano Concerto 5 Emperor  
with Berliner Philharmoniker  
 
Fairly good feedback from various reviewers. I sure would get a copy.

Lang Lang will be in Hong Kong towards end of 2014 to play Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto 1.  
 
I am not that interested to attend. Some of my friends wouldn't mind paying over HK$1,000 to hear him play live. Would you?  
 
Here is the Chopin ballade No1 by Lang Lang but I just cant help by telling you, I very much prefer Yundi Li over Lang Lang lor! Of course, for the still alive pianist, Zimerman is my obvious first choice la.

《中國大陸二胡國寶級演奏家閔惠芬,2014年5月12日上午在上海仁济医院因腦溢血病逝,享壽69歲。  
 
閔惠芬為中國二胡大家,也是兩岸開放交流以來最早訪台的中國音樂家之一,她的代表作《江河水》淒涼哀傷,被譽為「連休止符也充滿音樂」,小澤征爾也曾被她這首樂曲所感動,稱讚她「奏出了人間悲切」。》  
 
 
This is probably her best performance which is to remain a legend in the history of Chinese music. It's near impossible for me to listen to the whole piece of the "River of Sorrow" without a bit of tears.

If you are looking for sonic spectaculars among the current crop of recordings, this is it.  
 
Forget about the Elgar nor the Kol Nidrei, go straight to Carter. You will be knocked off your seat should you have the gut to turn up the volume.  
 
It's surprising to find that the recording engineer is none other than Mike Hatch, the top engineer in reign now. I found his name first in EMI recordings and then in Naxos and now in Decca as well. I suppose he is a free lancer not attached to any label, or more likely, his fees are too high to be engaged full time.
