Hello all friends of violin music.
I would be interested to hear opinions about the latest recordings of baroque and early violin.
In recent months I have acquired several CDs that have receveid favourable mentions by critics.
On playing them I feel the acoustics are so reveberant or full of echo that it is hard to enjoy the playing or distinguish the true sound of the violin.
Could it be that a new generation of recording engineers feel that the more artificial echo we add the better the recording.
This applies for instance to some Hyperion and Channel Island recordings of late.
I must add that I have been collecting and listening to classical music for some 50 years now and play on several setups using B&W alternatively Quad speakers in different acoustic environment.
Does anyone else feel the same - that acoustics are a bit overdone on some new recordings?
