Kurzbeschreibung
This Haydn set is something of an experiment. prompted by the anniversary year. Although MP3 has been used primarily for downloading. MP3 files can also be put on CD. Because it is a compressed format you can squeeze much more than 80 minutes playing time onto a CD. The degree of compression can vary from extreme to moderate. which. as you would expect. affects the sound quality of the end result. For this project we chose a compression rate that produces the highest quality allowed within the MP3 rules. To most ears it should be indistinguishable from a normal CD. but the 35 original CDs of the Haydn Symphony project can now be delivered to a consumer on 8 CDs
Rezension
Twenty years on. these 'modern-historic' recordings have been re-released by Nimbus in a new packaging which suits them perfectly for convenience and price. This is an innovative approach. by way of something of an experiment prompted by the anniversary year. For MP3 CDs they chose a compression rate that produces the highest quality allowed within the MP3 rules. To most ears (including mine) it is indistinguishable from a normal CD. I found that they played easily on DVD players; with our portable Sony. which has excellent sound. all you have to do is pop the disc in the slot and wait for the magic to happen. We sampled the project by listening to Symphonies 17 & 18 (neither of which I knew. I must confess) - delightful ! On my iMac you do the same. then click on the CD icon which appears on the desktop and select the clearly labelled track you want to listen to. I expect a lot of us will also listen to them on our iPods... The discs don't play on standard CD players. but that shouldn't prove a problem. For 2009's purchasers in this fraught. financially stretched Haydn tricentenary year. this is an unmissable bargain which deserves every success in assisting the fortunes of Nimbus/Wyastone. to whom record collectors are also indebted for their rescue of the Lyrita catalogue. Few readers will be able to put hand on heart and claim to really know all the symphonies and his violin concertos. What better way to join the Haydn celebrations at home. and for the price of a concert ticket The bargain of the Haydn tricentenary year ! --Peter Grahame Woolf. Editor. Musical Pointers
Almost by chance. but also related to the increasing trend for downloaded purchasing of music. a number of us here at MusicWeb International put ourselves through a compression test set by the indefatigable Kirk McElhearn...it was a big surprise to find how difficult it was to pick out even heavily compressed music files on a blind test. In short. with the high-grade 320kps files on this new MP3 edition of the complete Haydn Symphonies. you needn't have any real fear of any trade-off in sound quality. You might be asking yourself why Nimbus doesn't just offer these recordings as online downloads. but such a huge complete set would take days of irritating and no doubt costly toil to save onto your computer. and I think the neat way in which this whole set has been conceived and presented is something of a stroke of genius. The wonderful thing about being able to rummage through the entire canon of Haydn's symphonies is that you can discover how much truly marvellous music you've been missing by neglecting the less well-known works...All of this can now be yours for the price of about one and a half full price discs. so I say. give it a go! --Dominy Clements. musicweb-international.co.uk
