          The Daphnis and Chloe was just reissued by Acoustic Sounds. Haven’t played my copy yet.

            the Munch Daphnis is very atmospheric you really get a great sense of the venue and the music is up my alley. Im not a ballet watcher but I love the music. one of my most played RCAs from this period.

        • I couldn't find a better image, and it's too much trouble to take a picture and transfer it, so deal with it! Jean Guillou plays three works by Messiaen and one of his own, "Sinfonietta." The latter is disappointingly lightweight compared to his other works that I've heard.



          I bought that LP and this one at the California Audio Show yesterday. I've read nothing but rave reviews about both the playing and sound--it's often touted as one of the finest piano recordings ever made. I wouldn't got that far, but it's enjoyable. Due to the 45 rpm side length limitations, the Liszt Sonata is divided into two sides.

            maybe one of the finest piano recordings, but I agree not the best on all counts. The Japanese RCA 45rpm direct-to-disc of Beethoven's appassionata on a Bösendorfer is hard to beat.


            I never heard Jean Guillou's Messiaen recordings, ill check it out. The stuff he recorded for Dorian back in the day was reference quality through and through.

        • HIP purists would faint dead away after/while hearing this! Massive amounts of rubato, exaggerated dynamics, unusual tempi--you name it. In other words, it has a lot of personality! Great sound, too.

          • Stunning sound and excellent playing on this Blu-ray audio disc. (It also offers videos of the artists performing--and three different mixes!)
