|I wouldn't, either. The recording I have of the Bilbao show is the one I bought on iTunes, which is not the best possibly quality, but what the f..., it sounds the same as the studio recording. You're perfectly right here, Daniel/nightspore. |
Whilst I'm somewhat frustrated that this release comes after the "special" release of the Bilbao concert on iTunes, I have to say that I find the assertion that the studio and live recordings are the same somewhat bizarre, considering the deeply analytical nature of the discussions had on here. Of course, they're recordings of the same score, but they're by different performers working under a different conductor. It could be argued that those of us lucky enough to attend the concert in Bilbao are interpreting the recordings differently, but I don't think that's the case here; there are clear differences between the two recordings which I think make hearing both worthwhile. I'd not argue that either is inferior or superior in terms of how much you might enjoy it, but the live version certainly has a few rough edges. There are several parts which are clearly wrong, but at the same time, it's vibrant and interesting in its own way.
