The best album of 2005 so far.

This really happen: when I have a 3 disc-compilation box-set and when the each single peace or the entire collection in a whole crates such a huge enthusiasm within me and such a great admiration for the content of the entire album.

I bought this partially destroyed box-set with 3 records for $3. Inside it had 3-mint contrition, literally un-played original “Shaded Dog” records, all 1S, that the creators of this box set united under umbrella “The Tone Poems”. The wonderful book with Eugene Karlin illustrations, smart and intelligent text and so on… In other work whatever you can expect from the music industry during it’s better times. (The album was manufactured in 1956)

What distinct this album from any others is a phenomenally tasteful selection of music (each performance tonally is absolutely amassing) and astoundingly high quality of pressing. I have all of those recordings on their original releases but what wherever reason this album sounds much better then anything else. I do not know why but each of the peaces sound more dramatic and more “interesting” when I played it from the “The Tone Poems” collection. Also, I feel that the music sound slower on this album. (Not tonally but tempo-vise and I my book the slower tempo is better)

I do not know what those RCA people did to this album but I keep playing it and keep loving it. It is my favorite album for the first part of the 2005.

Strauss Tone Poems

For those who can't get those old disks, I would suggest the Tone Poems by Strauss (Ein Heldenleben, Don Juan, Till Eulenspiegel) conducted by Clemens Krauss and Willem Mengelberg:

Richard Strauss by Clemens Krauss - the real deal!

Yes, Max,

this is wonderful-wonderful disk and yes, any Richard Strauss compositions are essentially the tone poems. Pretty much whatever Clemens Krauss contacted by Richard Strauss should be snatched as he had a great knowledge and understanding what to do with Strauss.

The Testament has a magnificent transfer of Krauss’s Strauss that I highly recommend to anyone. All the best Krauss’s recordings of Strauss were with Vienna Philharmonic: Le Bourgeois , Ein Heldenleben, Dance of the Seven Veils, Don Quixote, Till Eulenspiegels, Aus Italien and of his Sinfonia Domestica…

Taking about Richard Strauss: I sincerely feel that his operas are highly and very unfortunately underappreciated. I am spinning now “Der Rosenkavalier” by Karajan/ Philharmonia (1957) with Schwarzcopf and Christa Ludwig…. what a marvelous work!!!
