Reiner ~~more~

My liking for Reiner continues with these 2 new CDs. Dvorak New World Symphony has always been one of my favorite.

I was visiting the Review33 and realised that many of the popular threads have been posting photos of nature rather the discussing hifi.  Perhaps, some site should change its name to photographic discussion?

Khachaturian Masquerade Suite, Kabalevsky The Comedians

For those who wants a lively and "happy mood" can choose this CD by Khachaturian Masquerade Suite, 
Kabalevsky The Comedians conducted by Kiril Kondrahin

The stereo effects are great as one can hear the music moving from left to right and right to left...perhaps that was the reason why it was known a "Living stereo" during the 50s..

Vienna : Fritz Reiner

iThis is another great CD

Reiner sound

I have been listening to Reiner Cds last week. This cd contains top recordings of Island of the dead by Racmaninov. It is known for quite a long time as audiophile's favourite and it truly deserves the praise it has received for years among audiophiles.

The sonics are amazing and the Chicago Orchestra could be compared to the best orchestras from Europe. F.Reiner stands on high heels with a devastatingly beautiful Pavane, from Ravel;the Spanish Rhapsody reveals a richly textured atmosphere. Like what someone said:  minimalist leaving the music to speak for itself.. Enjoy!
