This is my first foray into Amazon Prime MP3 music and I am very pleased. It's the first time I have had music on my iPhone. I needed my son's advice on technical questions, but the economy of purchase is superb. Wit's performance (Polish orchestra) is not my favorite but it is very workmanlike and true to the score. In recent years I have soured on iTunes; maybe Prime will be good to me. I need a device that will allow me to rehear excerpts many times over, as I write about composers. I prefer the Mackerras 1984 version of the Glagolitic mass that begins and ends with the Intrada, but that's a detail. Wit is dedicated and the sound is clear. I look forward to more MP3 Prime music.
The sound is superb! A warm and transparent, full bodied, dynamic recording! The performance of the Mass is excellent! The Sinfonietta left me with a "meh" feeling though. I love the work, but it just seemed like an unimaginative read-through. I wish conductors would take some hints from the George Szell/Cleveland reading!!
Naxos and Antoni Wit along with the Soloists, and the Warsaw Philharmonic and Choir
have put out what could easily be considered a first choice recommendation of these
Two beloved works of Leos Janacek. The soloists both the singers and the organist
really deliver the best sounding performances here. I could not find a weak link in
the whole bunch. Antoni Wit keeps the works moving along at a good pace that is easy
on the ear. The Sinfonetta also receives an excellent performance from the
orchestra. If the CD edition sounds this good I can only imagine how good the
Blu-Ray Audio disc must sound. Either way a good pairing and a good disc.
