And finally… the double basses, once again with four different true legato patches for full compositional variety. Legato patches allow you to turn legato off if you wish so that you can play polyphonically/chords, and the double basses also come with some percussive string fx, glisses, tremolo glissandos, and other experimental sounds too.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 7,38 Gb
Label: Decca Classics

This 53-CD set is more than the sum of its parts. While not all the performances and recordings are top-notch, the overall quality is very high and as a historical overview of a label known for its sonic as well as musical merits, it's full of treasures. The Mercury sound at its best is vivid and still sounds remarkable and many of these recordings - such as the marches, show tunes and orchestral showpieces conducted by Frederic Fennell - demonstrate this amply. But it's not all lollipops by any means.

Label: Warner Classics/Parlophone | Release Year: 2015

Between 1980 and 1998 Simon Rattle conducted no less than 934 concerts with the CBSO. Together they performed works by many 20th-century composers, as well as established favourites, and gave a total of 16 world premieres. Rattle also made 69 recordings for EMI with the orchestra. This box brings together that recorded legacy, which includes pieces by composers pivotal to his work, such as Mahler, Sibelius and Szymanowski, as well as some of the new compositions he championed — Nicholas Maw’s Odyssy, Mark Anthony Turnage’s Momentum, Three Screaming Popes and Drowned Out, and Thomas Adès’ Asyla.
David Holland / Barre Philips - Music From Two Basses (1971) {ECM 1011}

Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz, Free Jazz, Modern Creative

Originally released on ECM in 1971, and here reissued on CD in Japan, this historic date features the two British bassists engaged while at the top of their powers, exploring not only tonality and the dynamic and harmonic possibilities that exist between two double basses, but also the expanded notions of how the different players' styles and musical intuitions dovetail, rather than work in opposition. Holland's pizzicato attack is far more languid and lush than Phillips,' whose style is over the top; they approach each encounter as one in which sheer propulsiveness becomes an aesthetic.

Vitality of performance preserved even half a century after its recording. The recordings of Tchaikovsky’s late symphonies by Evgeny Mravinsky (1903 to 1988) - one of the premier conductors of 20th century Russia - taped by Deutsche Grammophon in 1960, are timelessly famous masterpiece recordings that have always been available as an integral part of the Deutsche Grammophon catalog since the album was released.

It was a deeply affecting and appropriate farewell. The spirit of Claudio Abbado, the great conductor and founder of orchestras who died in January 2014, was present in music, words, and silence. Thousands upon thousands came to the Basilica di Santo Stefano in Bologna and the Piazza della Scala in Milan to pay their last respects. In Lucerne, the members of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA paid tribute to this extraordinary man and friend with a deeply moving concert – “The emotional intensity was unbelievable; this could only be achieved by true musicians, by those capable of love.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung) Friends and associates look back fondly on Claudio Abbado and speak of how they experienced these moments of grief and farewell.
