Im now up and running with a Marantz TT15 with maestro cartridge, this has made a huge improvement in my analogue playback.
This leads me to my question, several discussions have taken place about the difference between classical recordings from different orchestras/conductors/recordings etc. Well it is becoming very clear to me that there are huge differences in different discs, so much so that i like the music on one recording but dont like it on another. Im still learning though. Id like to draw on experience for LP's ( and only albums ) that are known to be well recorded. Im looking for big dynamic orchestral peices, you know Pictures, 1812, firebird, rites of spring that type of thing. The thing is id like specific recording details please, ie Im looking for actual albums not peices of music.
Id love to find a good recording of the 1812, to date ive been disppointed with what ive found on LP.
Once again I appreciate that im still fumbling around in classical music like a 15 year old on his first date but like that same boy im sure as heck having fun !!!
