Alexander Nevsky Slatkin.jpg

24/96 CDAD rip of a 1978 Joanna Nickerenz/Marc Aubort minimally-miked recording effort for Vox. The Nevsky is an excellent performance in superb sonics.

Dark, angsty but reasonably melodic music. Well played and recorded.

Not the best SQ but absolutely masterful performances by Rudolph Serkin and Bernstein's NYPO: Sony 'Royal Edition' CD remixed/remasters of 1962/64 recordings of Beethoven Piano Concertos 3 & 5.

The Emperor is my favorite piano concerto, and I've heard quite a few recordings of this piece over the years, but Serkin's performance with the NYPO is my favorite. The No. 3 pairing here is also excellent. These remixed/remasters are a big step up over the originals and are quite listenable on my rig.
