NEWS: 1000 Recordings Podcast #19


If you haven't checked it out yet, these guys do an awesome podcast, five entries per week. I often wonder why a recording is listed, and Tony and Mitch have some great insight as to what to look for in the music. Not only that, but holy crap, I just now looked at the above image at full size: that is incredible!

This weeks recordings can be previewed here:
▪ Tony Bennett and Bill Evans, The Tony Bennett–Bill Evans Album 
▪ Alban Berg, Wozzeck (Hamburg State Philharmonic) 
▪ Alban Berg, Violin Concerto; Igor Stravinsky, Violin Concerto (Kaplan; Budapest Festival Orchestra) 
▪ Luciano Berio, Sinfonia for Eight Voices and Orchestra (London Voices; G√∂teborgs Symfoniker) 
▪ Hector Berlioz, Symphonie Fantastique (Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique)

  1. Thanks for the shout-out Mike! My wife made that image, by downloading all those individual album covers and assembling them like that by hand - I'll pass on your comment about it - I'm sure she'll appreciate it!
