his rendition of brahms' third symphony is awesome. transparency, expression AND timbre...
What Gardiner (and The Monteverdi Choir) did with complete Bach Cantatas is simply magnificent - jewel in already rich and beautiful career,it will take me some time to go trough all these albums but it's absolutely mind-boggling.
Happy New Year everybody, there's a new Conductors group on Last.fm! ZZee ya there, Hans-Jürgen
John Eliot Gardiner's Monteverdi: Vespro Della Beata Vergine Disc 1 and 2 takes some listening but well worth it.
