Boyce: The Eight Symphonies, Op. 2 - Württemberg Chamber Orchestra, Heilbronn/Jörg Faerber
KHCD-2012-039DL (STEREO) - Boyce: The Eight Symphonies, Op. 2 - Württemberg Chamber Orchestra, Heilbronn/Jörg Faerber - Companion recording to the Antonio Janigro/I Solisti di Zagreb reissue of the Boyce Symphonies (KHCD-2010-013), released in 1968 on the Turnabout label. There is some debate between collectors as to which recording between these two is the best. Honestly, they both are very good in terms of playing and recording. The Janigro is perhaps more precisely played, and a more reverberant recording; whereas the Faerber is a bit more robust and earthy, and recorded in a more chamber-like acoustic, although certainly not dry in sound. This disc was transcribed from a factory-sealed, torquiose-and-silver Turnabout LP, and was produced by request.
