This set of 20 CDs presents virtually everything that was recorded by Steinberg during the seven years that he recorded for Capitol: from the Schubert Second Symphony, recorded on 9 February 1952, to the Italian Serenade by Wolf, from 16 April 1959. There are some exceedingly good performances in this set and the recordings show that Capitol Records were at the technical forefront when it came to sound quality and production values.

Nathan Milstein - Dvorak: Violin Concerto & My Home Overture (1958 & 1965/2012) [DSD128 + Hi-Res FLAC]

Nathan Milstein, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, William Steinberg - Dvořák: Violin Concerto (1958)
London Symphony Orchestra, István Kertész - Antonín Dvořák: "My Home" Overture (1965/2012)

DSD128 (.dsf) 1 bit/5,6 MHz | Time - 38:21 minutes | 2,05 GB
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time - 38:21 minutes | 810 MB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Digital booklet

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra collaboration with William Steinberg exemplifies what Milstein could do with material often considered less than first rate. Milstein plays the concerto beautifully, with his typically aristocratic poise and a lightness of rhythm and purity of intonation that makes the music seem to float across the bar lines. The István Kertész inscription of Dvořák’s “My Home” fills out his survey of the complete symphony cycle for Decca.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 15,47 Gb
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

Limited edition 100 CD box set on the premiere classical label Deutsch Grammophon. Subtitled from Gregorian Chant to Gorecki. For some it will be the ultimate reference tool. For others a big place to start on something they always wanted to know about. Either way, the idea is to present a comprehensive history of Classical Music from its origins to the present day, covering all periods, including all major composers.

Classical, Meditation | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 971 Mb | Scans 2,11 Mb
Label: Deutsche Grammophon

The intent of this set is pretty clear from the titles of each of the six discs: Meditations; Orchestral Fireworks; Invitation to the Dance; Nocturne; Pomp & Circumstance; Grand Opera. This is mood or 'theme' music designed to provide either a background or a sequence of 'tasters' initiating the person who comes fresh to classical music with a sampling from the 'great and the good'. True the 'great and the good' are all from the core repertoire; not even a scintilla of Janacek, Nielsen, Adams, Reich which is a shame.
