Top 10 2015 Classical Reissues
Five successes from Pristine Audio!
BEETHOVEN Fidelio - "Flagstad in peerless voice, Kipnis’s forceful Rocco, René Maison’s vivid Florestan and, above all, Bruno Walter’s superb conducting make this live Met performance (1941) a moving experience."PACO 117
VERDI Aida - "With Zinka Milanov, Björling and the formidable Barbieri, this Rome Aïda (1955) is one to cherish."PACO 127
BRUCKNER Symphonies 8 & 9 - "Horenstein’s Mahler is celebrated, but here he shows mastery in Bruckner."PASC 429
BACH, SCHUMANN Concertos - "Cortot’s Schumann is predictably fine. The surprise is the Ecole Normales lively, modern-sounding Bach."PASC 447
MUSSORGSKY Boris Godunov - "Christoff s Tsar is illustrious. Less well known is Reginald Goodall’s sure grasp of the score and how he inspired Covent Garden in this 1961 performance."PACO 123
