Since the release of Stockfisch's first SACD sampler, the audiophile label has recorded and published many new Stockfisch productions including well known artists of the singer/songwriter scene as well as so called 'insider tips'. Listen to 15 new tracks, 70 minutes on this Hybrid-SACD! Just like Vol. 1, this second Stockfisch collection Closer To The Music Vol. 2 offers on its 15 individual tracks a wide musical variety. These recordings, as any listener will experience, exemplify once again the Stockfisch philosophy: closer to the music!
Here is a recording that at last does justice to the extraordinary music of Hotteterre. Hotteterre's music is surely some of the most lyrical and melodic music ever written for the transverse flute. It some of the first music ever written to feature the instrument. Dupré breathes new life into these three suites, which are both joyous and dark. The color produced by the skilled combination and variance of harpsichord, viola ga gamba, and theorbo playing the continuo part is fantastic. This is a superlative recording, worthy of a price many times what it is. I have heard several recordings of these suites, and this is certainly the best.

A live recording of concerts from London, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Munich, Berlin, Graz, Prague, Zurich, Athens, Ankara, Jerusalem & Caesarea May, 1992. After the '70s, Jethro Tull struggled with each album to update their sound, but kept falling short with out-of-place synthesizers and drum machines. Three attempts at harder-rocking albums were followed by the Little Light Music tour in 1992, one which took a step back into a relaxing semi-acoustic setting. This album, a document of that May's European shows, should be treasured by fans looking for something more than the 10,000th performance of "Aqualung"…
Crystal Ball wasn't as successful as Equinox, but it was a better album, showcasing Styx's increased skill for crafting simple, catchy pop hooks out of their bombastic sound…
Since 1727, JS Bach's "Great Passion" has gripped the hearts and uplifted the minds of audiences all over the globe. Nearly three centuries after its premiere, the work has lost none of its power to evoke feelings of compassion for all those who suffer. Its mix of urgent story-telling, meditative arias and mighty choruses sets St Matthew's account of Christ's betrayal, trial and execution eloquently and emotionally.
