Audiophilia: Mozart Violin Concertos Nos. 3 & 4, etc / Julia Fischer SACD

MOZART: Violin Concertos Nos. 3 & 4; Adagio K.261; Rondo K.269 - Julia Fischer, violin / Netherlands Chamber Orchestra / Yakov Kreizberg - PentaTone multichannel SACD.

Audiophile Audition's review

Ah, now here's a small ensemble that is excellently recorded. The recording still isn't mic'ed quite as closely as I'd prefer (I want to hear the fibers of the strings on the violin!), but the dynamic range and presence are excellent. It's one of those recordings that sounds decent at modest volumes, but really comes alive when played full-bore. I don't know if my speakers/amp need to cross a certain power threshold to really open up; whatever the case, volume is required here to really get at the good stuff.

I am unfamiliar with these Mozart pieces so once again I must defer my review of her performance until later. From what I've heard so far I'm pleased.

Performance: tbd
Recording: Top-Tier SACD
