The Blu Ray Experience: Opera and Ballet Highlights [Blu-ray]
Bbc / Opus, 2008
This is an interesting disc in several respects; the first one for me being the audio options available to the listener. On the opening screen one is given the option of choosing between PCM Stereo, PCM Surround, DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby True HD Surround. That alone is worth the price of admission as it could help address the never-ending question about which audio format sounds best in your ...
Tutti!: Orchestral Sampler [Hybrid SACD]
Reference Records, 2008
First SACD from Reference Recordings ! Contains world premiere recording of Eiji Oue conducting the Minnesota Orchestra in his own composition, E.C.F. from Presque Isle .
HDCD Sampler, Vol. 2 (Reference Recordings)
Reference Recordings, 1995
I Was Skeptical, but Hearing is Believing
I bought a Toshiba 5109 last year for the progressive component video capability. I knew that it had a HDCD decoder but that fact didn't make much of an impression at the time. I didn't buy it for that reason and it wasn't a factor in my evaluation of DVD players. I was wrong, it should have been. Two months ago my interest in possibly buying a SACD and DVD-Audio player caused me to take a ...
Naxos Classical Guitar
Naxos Guitar Sampler
At this price you can't beat it.
A sampler it is, and for a comparison of diversity of both composition and technique you get a lot for your money. A real bargain.
Highlights from Prima Voce
Nimbus Records, 1999
Telarc Sacd Sampler: Absolute Sound
Good for what it is, however narrow.
The Absolute Sound has been a premiere audiophile rag for decades. If you are one, you already know them. If not, then there is only a small chance their magazine will be useful to you. They have another publication for home theatre, "Perfect Vision" which has far broader appeal these days. SACD is the format for this disk. Many of them are pressed in "hybrid" for use on conventional CD ...
2001 American Classics Sampler
Celebrate the American Classic
Naxos American, 2001
More than just a bargain...
This album has become part of my permanent rotation of background music at the office. We don't get good radio reception, and we're not allowed to use the internet for non-business purposes, which leaves out both public radio and Pandora internet radio options. Amazon has definitely helped me stock my mp3 player and CD collection. As for track 14, I knew the tune but had not yet learned the ...
Linn Selektions: The Surround Sound SACD Sampler
Linn Records, 2004
Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.
An Organ Blaster Sampler
Johann Sebastian Bach
Pure Majestic Power!
Corey is right - this is an outstanding organ CD, one of the best I've heard. Murray plays some of the largest and most powerful organs on Earth, and uses the reed stops more than the usual organist to produce great effects and a wall of sound that are majestic in the extreme. The selections are all great virtuoso showpieces, and track #6 by Messiaen (Dieu parmi nous from La Nativite') is ...
Music and Nature Sampler
Spj Music, 1994
Peaceful & Soothing
Sounds of Music and Nature Sampler is a very nice CD to put on when your children are going to bed, need to be calmed or even when the adult of the house needs to be calmed. For the price, this CD is worth every penny.
See How Great They Sound!: The Classics DVD Sampler 2004-2005
Deutsche Grammophon, 2005
This dvd offers so many possibilities. It's a great opportunity to browse through various operas you might consider buying. You can see and hear them, to help decide about buying. It's a chance to be exposed to things you might not have considered. For example, there are three ballet scenes, one of them with Nureyev and Fonteyn. I never dreamed humans could be so light and airy. ...
Telarc Classical SACD Sampler 4 (Multichannel Hybrid SACD)
THIS IS A GOOD SACD FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO ENJOY CLASSICAL, BUT ALSO ENJOY A VARIEY OF CLASSICAL STYLES ON ONE DISK. THE MULTI CHANNEL SEPERATION IS TOP NOTCH AS IS THE OVERALL RECORDING.
Great Pianists of the 20th Century - Selections from the definitive collection [Sampler]
Polygram Records Philips, 1998
Unparalled Excellence (Mark G. Davis)
If you only purchase one classical piano cd in your entire life, this one should be it. All the masters, at their very best on it. If you have piano cd's, this should be part of that collection. I purchased one, almost not believing what I read on the jacket. I'm telling my friends about this one, as I'm aware of no other CD having all those piano masters - - at any price?)...
Telarc & Heads Up SACD Sampler 5 (Multichannel Hybrid SACD)
Super Audio CD Sampler 2 (Hybr)
Stay in Tune With Pentatone
A great label sampler plus SACD speaker set up.
Here is one of those unusual form and function SACDs that not only samples from the wonderful Pentatone library of high rez classical music but also contains the most useful assortment of surround audio test tones, phase checks amd balance controls I've discovered in my ..... years of audio. For anyone interested, the world of surround audio is ever so different from the usual 5.1 video array of ...
Complete Beethoven Edition--Sampler / Kempff
Deutsche Grammophon, 1997
Let this be the doorway to heaven
A few years ago I heard this sampler. From off that day I've been wanting to have this collection. I never brought anything of Beethoven since I always thought, one day Im going to get the entire set of music, so by now I am about halfway the collection. I have 10 volumes and I can tell you that it absolutely rocks. I dont know any other composer making such fantastic music. Not to mention the ...
Telarc Sacd Sampler: Sound & Vision
Sound and Vision SACD Sampler
My reference disk, bar none. Simply amazing. I like samplers, variety is spicy for me and, of course, the sponsor generaly picks the best stuff they can find....generally. (JVC extended range cds can be an excpetion)
Telarc Classical Sacd Sampler 2
Telarc Classical Sacd Sampler
Great surround album.
Not into the review thing too much. I like classical, I am a broadcast engineer who appreciates high quality recordings played on a hifi system. This disk could be boring to those who listen to this on a turd stereo.
Variations Theme Happy Birthday
Angele Dubeau & La Pieta
Indies Canada/Zoom, 2009
Great collection of free classical music
I really enjoyed listening to this album all the way through. I recognized about half the tracks from previous experience with classical music and the rest was new to me. This is free, so there is no reason that everyone shouldn't snag this and add it to their collection.
Windham Hill Records: Piano Sampler
A compilation featuring a 'who's who' of avant garde piano virtuosos. The pianists on this compilation have combined sales of over 3 million records and exposure in the film, television and public television worlds.But the magic of this compilation has been the juxtaposition of the crème of piano compositions. Including Tim Story, Michael Harrison, Richard Dworsky, and others.
