    So, is Bang Bang the Nickelback of classical music -- the acceptable target? :D

    1st Listen (Mahler Symphony No. 4, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Philharmonia):

    It's a beautifully transparent recording...revealing details of orchestration that I don't hear often...it's like being in the concert hall.

    Maybe they already had a sold-out concert together, speaking of low information concert goers ...

    I continue to be astonished by the recorded sound in Sinopoli's 1993 Philharmonia recording of Mahler's 4th Symphony:

    I have Klemperer's 1962 recording of Mahler's 4th Symphony with the same orchestra and though I think it's a wonderful performance, the recorded sound is no where near as transparent...I can hear instrumental tone and timber (as well as the tone of Edita Gruberova's voice) in the Sinopoli recording that is not as clear in Klemperer's recording.

    Daedalus I haven't heard it all.....

    Today was a Jerry Garcia day for me. Classical-no. But a classic-yes!

    I'm not sure it's fair to compare a 1961 recording (Klemperer) with one from 1991 (Sinopoli), thirty years later with vastly improved technical possibilities.

    It may be many things, but it is definitely not HIP - lol

    "Hip" as in millennial hipsters... ;)

    "Look, Chad, I just bought this new LP. I don't know who or what Lang Lang or Bach is, but I just had to have it--it's soo trendy. I hear it's just fab, so of course I bought it."

    "Oh Reign, whatever it is I bet it's beyond fab."

    I have been mixing in some King Crimson with my classical today. Currently listening to Beethovens Ninth, Schuricht conducting the Paris Conservatory.

    To be honest, I think it will mostly sell (very) well with his homeland fanbase. Western millenial hipsters are busy buying vinyl reissues of the Beetles :winkgrin::hide:

    Really? I would've thought to wrap the capstan however many times it took to get A=440 but of course that's cheating.

    My bad... I thought 'HIP' stood for 'historically inferior product'. Or perhaps that's 'hysterically'!

    Precisely my point. With his first release on Deutsche Gramophon years ago, Garrett looked to be a promising young man with a bright future in classical music.

    Then he seems to have decided he'd do better being a pop star playing tarted-up classical works. YMMV, but IMHO: YUCK!
