Ravel: Boléro, La Valse
Long Play Vinyl
No of Discs:
A bacwards playing LP? How can that be? Ravel's Bolero as you have never heard it before! The title of this LP has to therefore be 'OreloB'. Click here for a demonstration: https://youtu.be/5Afikv6k1-c "A little festival" - that's how Mirko Weber concluded his review of the CD version of this recording in "Die Zeit". He was delighted with how Carlo Rizzi and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra took pleasure in relishing all the fine details. - Well, then, here comes the big festival now, at least for vinyl fans. Never before, we dare to predict, has Bolero sounded as good on an LP as it does here. How is that possible? It's amazingly simple: place the needle in the groove on the inside, instead of, as is customary, on the outside. And as the needle slowly wanders outwards, the ability of the record player becomes better able, along with the increased tension in the music, to scan ever higher volumes. If you don't believe it, listen to it.
