And thank you, T.  I read in The Audiophile Voice that a recording of some Beethoven quartets as played by The Fry Street Quartet using the Kimber Iso Mike System (which I had previously never heard of) is the bees knees.  The Audiophile Voice is Gene Pitts, formerly the man behind Audio magazine.  Anybody know about this mike (or recordings) and why it's cool?

For the last two years....at RMAF....in the Kimber room....their Kimber Iso Mike System recordings have been featured. (...what a room!)

I would guess the same for this upcoming RMAF.... :wink:

KOR- Proprius.  Another go to recording for me.  Cantate Domino was the Proprius choral recording that got all the press back in the day but, fellas, and ladies, KOR has some modern music on it (Saul!- Hovland; Beatus Vir- Holmboe) in addition to some Purcell and Verdi (everybody else in 20th century) that will send chills down your spine, up your spine, too.  And the recording is super.  Spooky good for those modern pieces in particular.  Warmest recommendation from my room to yours.  I have only the olde fashion black disc version.   

Those danes and 'wegins and svedes sure do know how to make a record.  LIGHTS OUT out for the above.

Aaron Copeland, third symphony, London Phil, conducted by Copeland, 1959 Everest recording. The gem of my rather small but growing collection.  Beyond words my friends.

Hey, I have the same Corelli, Lully and Vivialdi CD's as above. I absolutely love them, just wish Pinnock re-record Corelli now in the same studio as Savall produces his magically sound CD's! I also think that Biondi's disk was recordered by the same French studio. :thumb:

Just finished a two-year DIY rebuild* of my sound room and am re-learning my classical catalog.  Tonight a Dorian sampler, last night The Reiner Sound, On The Banks of the Helicon on Dorian, and several Telarc film score CDs.

*too damned stubborn and cheap to hire the job out, and I kept redesigning until the carpet was laid.

       Camden Shaw Cello Solo
Bach, Kod?ly & Ligeti


     
Quote
I was speechless during the sessions. Camden took me to another universe with his Kod?ly. It transcends, transforms and transports. There is no other way to express it. Only the greats have ever played this work. I have been a deep aficionado of the cello all my life and I was astonished by this and still am when listening back to it. This is a must-have, must-listen, for the many enthusiasts of the instrument and its associated literature.
        This was captured Direct-to-PCM with only two microphones and with no equalization or compression, in an intimate acoustic space, in July and September of 2009.

Listening to Perahia again in Mozart - definitely a set that puts beauty above all:

A nice alternative to Rubinstein & Ashkenazy - Chiu is more pianistic in his approach, and more overtly melancholy.  Good stuff:
