EAN/barcode: 4009850013211

It’s been quite a while since Markus Schirmer visited Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Despite the considerable competition, the recording has received excellent reviews. Schirmer impresses with well-thought-out, succinct and precisely-measured effects, which are shown off to their best advantage on the Fazioli piano in the List Halle in Graz, Austria. In the process, he never lapses into cheap showmanship: he simply conveys the impressions triggered by the pictures themselves.
Actually, the recording should have appeared a while ago on LP. However, the delay has also had its advantages: we can now offer it in TACET’s famous reverse playback, which, with suitable music, offers a greater listening experience than was hitherto possible on vinyl.

"(...) Und wenn man eine neue LP auf den Markt bringt, dann sollte sie immer wenigstens so gut klingen wie diese von TACET."

(...) Die (...) Einspielung hat klanglich das Zeug zur Referenzaufnahme. (...) Rundum gelungen.

Stereoplay 04/18 (04/01/2018):

(...) Pianist Markus Schirmer holt aus seinem Fazioli F-278 eine Dynamik und orchestrale Klangfülle heraus, die in den engeren Innenrillen einer LP doch gelitten hätten. Andreas Spreer ließ die zweite Seite kurzerhand rückwärts schneiden, sodass das Große Tor die Außenrillen füllt. more...

analog 1/2018 (01/01/2018):

(...) [Es gelingt] Andreas Spreer diese Bandbreite des emotionalen musikalischen Ausdrucks, die alle Wäreme und alle Feinnervigkeit des Spiels genauso einfängt wie die wuchtigen Abstiege in den Keller des Fazioli, wie sie Pianist Markus Schirmer zelebriert, absolut authentisch einzufangen. more...
