Víkingur Ólafsson.- « Philip Glass-piano works »

Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. 24 bit/96 kHz – DR13.

A small marvel of interpretation for the celebration of Philip Glass’ 80 years.  » At first hearing,, one would say that they are full of repetitions, but the more they are played and the more one thinks about it, the more the musical narration seems to develop into spirals. My approach to each of the works is to enable the listener to create his own space for personal reflection. » V.Olafsson.
Perfect recording from C.Tarnow and K.Zimmerman with the Genuim record philosophy.

Vivaldi.-« Vespri per l’Assunzione di Maria Vergine »

Naive, 2004. 16 bit/44,1 kHz – DR13.

Splendid work from Rinaldo Alessandrini for this compilation of various Vivaldi’s sacred compositions. The solo singers and musicians are of perfect accuracy at the heart of emotion (divine performance of Sara Ringando on the Nisi Dominus). Beautifully recorded. Mastering by M. Poussin.
