 Hitting the Bull's eye in a decade of misses July 4, 2013 By S. Hampton See All My Reviews "What is so arrestingly apparent from the first seconds of this 1982 DDD recording is amazing clarity and depth in the soundstage! There is no mention in the liner notes of WHERE this recording was made: the Musiverein, the Wiener Konzerthaus. But wherever it was made, the gods of recording and performing all came together to create an anomaly: that is, a GREAT recording in a time when some of the WORST recordings were being put out by DG, Decca, et al. I haven't even begun to critique the performance. Well, let me say that for my taste, it excels in every respect. The power, youth, passion and tenderness are all rendered with profound love: humans just don't play and sing like this without feeling deep love. This recoding is an eloquent testament to the recording art and performing art . I shall treasure it all my life." Report Abuse
