Hi all, I just received an email from Pentatone about a sale this weekend on the works of Brahms and Tchaikovsky, who share the same May 7th birthday. You can use the promo code DUOLEGEND17 through the end of Sunday, May 7th at the Pentatone online store for 20% off. I bought the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto (Julia Fischer) in high-res from Pentatone, and it was a great experience- download package included multichannel and surround DSD ISOs which burned to DVD and played no problem on my Oppo BDP-83 disc player, and there was even a copy of low-res MP3s included along with liner and album art. Overall, a pleasant purchase for me. @Musicophile, any particular Pentatone pieces from Brahms or otherwise you could recommend? Anyone else? Enjoy! -Tyler
This is the classic, monumental 1961 recording of Brahms's 'Ein deutsches Requiem' with Otto Klemperer and the Philharmonia Orchestra & Chorus on EMI, part of that label's recent batch of 96/24 remasterings of its back catalog. Downloaded from HDtracks. The graphs here (of the 2nd movement) look great, and they show that even 50-year-old analog tapes have a good deal of dynamics and frequency extension. Russell
