The prize for Technical Excellence of BBC Music Magazine Awards is on Pentatone label and producer Job Maarse

Posted on 10 April 2013 by admin

This award is for the recording of Wagner’s Parsifal conducted by Marek Janowski. The album is 4 CD Hybrid SACD – DSD box-set, this is the strongest sung of any of PentaTone’s Wagner operas to date, which makes it a satisfying experience, not one to compare to classic Parsifals from Karajan and Knappertsbusch but fully up to any from the past decade under Gergiev, van Zweden, and Thielemann. The conducting is workaday, but there are many pluses on the vocal side.
