Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A Major, Horn Concerto No. 1 in D Major & Horn Concerto No. 3 in E Flat Major
I thoroughly enjoyed all three of these well-known pieces, performed beautifully. From a technical perspective, the transfer is very good with little to no tape hiss or other artifacts prominent enough to compromise listening enjoyment. When I write a review, whenever I can, I like to compare the subject recording with another recording of the same music. In this case, I listened to the No. 3 Concerto that I had ripped from an old CD. It was a Denon recording of the 4 Concerti for horn and Orchestra with the Prague Change Orchestra - a favorite of mine. When I compared it to the one with Maag and the LSO, I found that the overall sound stage was better in the Denon recording and the string section was at least as good as the LSO. I found I liked the ‘sound’ of the strings better than in the LSO as well. These are all small points. Overall this was a very good recoding and a pleasure to listen to.
