Lol... Ok, so my lame attempt to build suspense kinda fell flat.

"The Berlin Concert: Live from the Waldbuhne"

http://www.amazon.com/Berlin-Concert-Liv...47881372&sr=1-2

When Placido is the weak link (not really), you know you have something great.

Netrebko is so beautiful and talented its painful.

I don't think I could make it through a whole opera but these selections are just right for the casual listener who can appreciate great instrumental and vocal talent. No matter the genre.

Ok, so this is not exactly brand new- but I didn't see it listed and thought it should be.

It has literally changed the way I look at music. (so to speak)

If you try this one I think you will enjoy.

(Sorry I didn't research how to make a proper link.)

Cool, thanks for the recommendation, Randall.

I've been trying to get into opera. I'll add it to my cart!

Very good, Randall; with that lineup I suspect that it'll stun me!

Anna Netrebko in this concert is the very definition of stunning so its particularly rewarding that the quality of the recording conveys that so wonderfully.

Let me add another stunning recording that also has top notch Blu-ray audio/pic quality as well as talent and material.

The Pyongyang Concert: New York Philharmonic w/ Lorin Maazel

Very nice, fun renditions of Dvorak's "From the New Word," Gershwin's "An American in Paris" and Bernstein's "Candide Overture."

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I have; I can play them over and over, enjoying them each time more than the last.

Amazon classifies it as an "Essential Recording" and that's certainly no hype. The classic Bernstein performances of Copland's Appalachian Spring, Billy The Kid and Rodeo have an energy and excitement which aren't matched by other fine versions. Remastered in clear, close-up sound for a thrilling listening experience.

Conductor Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, both at their peak, recorded the Shostakovich 1st Symphony in the presence of the composer. A very energetic performance of the remarkable symphony he'd composed when he was only 18 resulted, much to Shostakovich's approval.

The remaining items, which might be considered to be Shostakovich Lite, are a collection of colorful, very vigorous dance-like items from ballets and films, conducted by Andre Kostelanetz.

Available from various Amazon sellers , but the best price for a new copy at this time would appear to be from MDT , about $6.90 plus $1.20 shipping.

I have to agree on this one, it is one of my favorites!

Also good for an older recording is the Elton John Honky Chateau SACD.
