Starker - Bach Cello Suites

I just picked this up - I had never heard it before - and WOW! Great sound and impressive performance. Also, the Speakers Corner reissue has some QUIET vinyl - some of the lowest surface noise I have ever heard on my setup (to be honest, I didn't know my setup could be so quiet).

Of course, people here are way bigger classical junkies than I, so you've all probably heard this before. If you haven't though, it is truly impressive.

That's all.

Re: Starker - Bach Cello Suites

If you have a SACD player with multi-channel outputs and the ability to set up a balanced three channel front, try the re-issue of the original Mercury three channel recordings. You'll finally hear what Cozart Fine feels is the real sound they heard at the recording site. This is probably one of the best reasons for owning a SACD player right now.

Re: Starker - Bach Cello Suites

I have none of the above...I kind of wish you hadn't told me that.

Well, that's the first thing I'll do if I get access to a system like that.
