Sor: Early works for guitar - William Carter        (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  January 2, 2011

This record is a phenomenal achievement, most inspiring and enjoyable. Carter has produced a collection that is representative of classic Spanish guitar as it was possibly performed in the early XIX century: a stunning piece of work! I will briefly cite two reasons supporting this strong positive ... more
Mendelssohn: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2, Piano Music - Leonskaja, Volkov        (7 of 7 found this review helpful)
  May 23, 2009

This record includes a wonderful programme with the 1st and 2nd Mendelssohn Piano Concertos, and a selection of Songs without Words.

Beethoven: Piano Concertos Nos. 3, 4 & 5 - Pizarro, Mackerras        (6 of 8 found this review helpful)

Some questions to those who play music on Sony SCD-XA5400ES .
January 7, 2011
If you get the disc transport, the electronics/soft to support H.A.T.S. and discard everything else, eg fancy D/A's, fancy powr supply, etc (forgive me pls for this oversimplification), you got everything you need to run at your desired fidelity. All I am saying, in other words, is that you just need add H.A.T.S. to the 570/equivalent BD, and you ... more
