I was overwhelmed by this downloaded hi-res file last evening. I have the CD version but I have never before been so moved!  
 
This recording was re-mastered by EMI back in 2011 to 24/96 format. I know this higher resolution version would blow away the CD but honestly I wasn't a bit prepared for the gushing torrent of passion from this great artist.

Ravel piano music is my recent favorite, dreamy, atmospheric, colorful. The best `live' performance I have ever heard of was by Koo-Wun Paik in art festival last year in which he performed all Ravel piano work in a 3 hours marathon concert. After the last note of of the last piano pieces `Mirror', time stand still, and the full house concert hall have nothing but silence ( some kids who are forced to listened by their parent have fall asleep already ).  
 
Listened to Ravel's piano works by Tharaud last night, French music played by french musician recording by french company, I cannot think of a more authentic combination, the recording with surprisingly clear and trueful, Ravel actually don't want his music to be `intepreted', with such a beautiful sound the composer created, I doubt any intepretation is necessary.

Rudy's concert is a first in my experience, combining audio and visual arts.  
His playing was outstanding though the programme was a bit short and the encore just repeating excepts from the Pictures.  
I was sitting at the front row and noticed his hands are exceptionally large, wondering whether it may help his playing which was just effortless. Also the piano was removed to the far left in the second half to make way the the visual effects. The piano sound was much better when it was placed at the center. The sound became clangy and mechanical when placed to one side.  
One side note, met Mr. Rudy last night as I was watching the Beijing opera at APA. He seemed to enloy the show though he was in a hurry to catch the flight to Paris.

Listened to concert by Rudy last night, wonderful modern piano program featuring Sciabin, Prokofiev, Stravinsky in first half, it is a wonderful experience to hear these interesting work live. Ruby played with precision and affection, as goos as I could imagine.  
 
Second feature Mussorgsky picture at an exhibition with movie make by Rudy bases on instruction and painting by Kandinsky is even more interesting, Kandinsky painting was inspired by Mussorgsky's music and he try to use paint brush, dots and line to express the wonderful music Mussorgsky have wrote. The result music and vision match perfectly to present a memorable evening.

Einojuhani Rautavaara is a modern composer who wrote music with strong romantic accent, I first encounter this interesting peaceful work from HKPO concert, under baton of David Atherton. It didn't sound too alien to me back then and love this work till now.  
 
The recording I have was by Lintu/Royal Scottish Orchestra on Naxos, the trueful recording once again make me amaze, together with liner notes by composer himself, I cannot stop expressing my appreciation to Naxos for delivering a recording of such a high standard asking for such a modest price.

Listened to Rachmaninov symphony no.2 last night, this is my beloved symphony, with wonderful big heart warming melody in slow movement and russian style Sentimental First, second and fourth movement.  
 
Gergiev performed with passion and Russian favor, however the SACD recording are uneven and highly compressed, sound significantly inferior to Previn on EMI or Ormandy on RCA, not to mention audiophil grade Ashkenasy's recording, which is a pity considered the excellent performance of Gergiev and LSO.

CKM,  
 
Totally agree with every word you wrote. Fliter, though 1st runner-up to Yundi in the 2000 Chopin Competition, played with flair and spontaneity, in stark contrast to Li's careful, measured style. Her Saint Saens was a joy to listen and beauty to watch.  
Her Chopin encore pieces, though far from the traditional Rubinstein style, has her own character that provided audience with another perspective . Like it or not depends on one's taste.  
Antoni Wit gave a really 'heroic' account of Beethoven's third symphony. His Funeral March was just magical. But I do think that HKPO just fell short of the standard that was demanded by the Maestro. Otherwise it would be almost perfect.  
Of the Eroicas that I've heard live, including de Waart/HKPO and Simon Rattle/BPO, I like his account most.

Brief Concert review15/9/2012 (SAT)  
HKPO/Ingrid Fliter/Antoni Wit  
 
Programme  
FRANCK  
The Accursed Hunter  
SAINT-SAËNS  
Piano Concerto No.2  
BEETHOVEN  
Symphony No.3 Eroica  
 
For busy executives: Last night concert was one of the best concert in 2012, on similiar level with HKPO/Gennadi Rozhdestvensky earlier this year and HKPO/Jaap von Zweden last year.  
 
If I label this concert as the best of the season, I am afraid someone will say the best as yet to come, especially Jaap von Zweden have not showed his magic yet, but last night concert is breathtaking indeed.  
 
The concert open with Franck Accursed Hunter as warmup, the orchestra tells a wonderful story with music, Antoni Wit conduct with brief but clear direction, but the story tale was vivid and lively.  
 
Magic begins after Ingrid Fliter step on stage, a passsionate young lady with a smile on her face, which was a sharp contrast with Yundi LI one week earlier. SaInt-Saens piano concerto is a short romantic showpiece which rely on the pianist to bring it off, and Ingrid Fliter was exceptional, from the Cadenza like introduction, to the thundering volcanic climax, Ingrid Fliter demonstrated that she is more than a great suscessor to Martha Argerich. Every notes was infused with heartfelt passion and the poetic touch put Yundi's performance one week earlier into shade. Two encore was played, a dreamy Chopin's Noctune and a dancing waltz, euthusastic applause was received from the whole well filled concert hall.  
 
Beethoven Symphony No.3 was played in the second half, under the baton of Antoni Wit, who was well known to be a versatile conductor who could make any music sound good, HKPO played with their heart on sleeve and on the edge on the seat. A enegetic first movement, heavy sublime second movement, and joyful third movement and finally exciting forth movement, Wit conduct a account that can compare with any great masters in the past, thunderous applause from HKPO member as well as audience is expected.  
 
All in all, this concert sat a very high standard for season, hope Jaap von Zweden can give us more surprise when he arrived.

>> whole orchestra playing such music rather than small ensemble <<  
Perhaps I become fond of chamber recently. Just a few examples, Mendelssohn's Octet, I perfer a double string quartet with 4 violins and pairs of violas and cellos  
instead of all the instruments in symphonic orchestral style. Mozart Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, in quartet rather than a string orchestra

____________________________________________________________  
 
I don't think so. Can or bottle is of similar size. Some may find authentic instrument more approproate for baroque music, I'm more excited by the whole orchestra playing such music rather than small ensemble. They are much fuller in tone and grander in scale. For Bach's Mass in B minor I like the reading by Klemperer much more than that by Koopman or Harnoncourt.

Initially I also dislike music by authentic instrument but become fond of it after a few listening. Nevertheless, it is only up to music of Baroque period or earlier. Works like Mozart Requiem, Beethoven Symphony (3rd or after), Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique in authentic instrument are not my cup of tea.  
 
My selection criteria might be, music suitable to be played in a palace, musicians in court dress with an ensemble at most in a moderate size. Tone quality, articulation, way of singing… etc are quite different from the modern ones; together with the dress code, a picture of elegance is projected. Visual art, perhaps.

Personally I do not like the so called authentic reading by modern conductors, such as Harnoncourt and Trevor Pinnock. I like the classical 'old' school maestro whose approach are in traditional romantic grand style. My favourite Beethoven conductors are Bruno Walter, George Szell and Otto Klemperer. Many hailed Furtwangler but the sound of the historical recording precluded me from liking him. As an audiophile the sound of a recording has a high priority.

Welcome, I have been in the same concert featuring Maestro Gennadi Rozhdestvensky and Viktoria Postnikova, I think it was a highlight of last season and the best version of Manfred symphony I have ever heard of, Rozhdestvensky conducted with a slow tempo but HKPO was turned into a true Russian orchestra under his baton, a great performance.  
 
For Tchaikovsky Piano concerto no.2 on that night, the playing was lovely with poetry and fire in equal proportion, but if you love Stephen Hough's version, you may be amazed by how great Emil Gilels was after listening to his verison on EMI.  
 
A final note, we can hear Stephen Hough live later this years pairing with HKPO performing both Liszt piano concerto in one night.

Hello everyone, thank you for your sharing on classical music.  
 
 
In my humble opinion, perhaps Chopin music is my perception of Yundi, I find his Tchaikovsky sounds a bit Chopin, in particular the slow movement.  
 
About Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1, I was impressed by Brios Berezovsky’s playing with HKPO. He is tall, looks like a giant.  
 
Also, I have to mention Tchaikovsky No.2, the piano trio or triple concerto like second movement becomes my personal favorite upon first listening. Playing of by Viktoria Postnikova plus the other 2 soloists in the Hkpo concert some months ago was especially impressive.  
 
If you like No.2, you could try the one by Stephen Hough under Hyperion, here you can listen to alternative versions of the second movement.

Did you come across some historical informed performance, I myself love the one by Harnoncourt, he utilized a fast tempo that work well in the first movement, compare with Walter and Klemperer, his version is lively, energetic, dynamic and have a ground breaking quality that match well with Beethoven's Eroica symphony.

For Sat. concert listened to the beethoven's Symphony Eroica by Leonard Berstein/VPO, recorded by DG in 1980.  
Berstein is always a controversial conductor, either you love or hate him. The older he is the more idiosyncratic he becomes. I don't like his Eroica. He is too self indulgent and pretensious,making the flow of music unnatural. He is not helped by the recording either, the soundstage is restrictive and the instrumental voices are not distinct. I much preferred the version by B. Walter/Columbia SO.
