That is interesting... I feel the same way.

Problem with me and streaming is that I listen just once!

Anton Bruckner - Symphony no. 8
Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Jaap van Zweden




Fantastic music of course, but it is played magnificently here.
Probably my top choice of all the versions I own.
Splendid 5.0 sound.

Ludwig Van Beethoven - Violin Concerto & Romances

Wonderful on all accounts (except for the (very low) rumble in the rear channels... should you listen with a sub).

To conclude my journey through my Beethoven String Quartet recordings:




Utterly fantastic, performance and sound.

Myaskovsky, Shebalin & Nechaev - Violin Sonatas
Sasha Rozhdestvensky, violin
Viktoria Postnikova, piano
Qobuz 24/96




To tell you the truth, I had never heard of these composers.
But as Hifi Critic recommended this album, I'm playing it.
Seems these are all works that appear for the first time on CD (or stream).
Well recorded.

Listening to a suggestion of Ed:




Polyphony is one of our favourite genres.
This is a (very) fine example of well sung and directed renaissance music.
