Listening Room

  1. Antonin Dvorak-Kreisler: Songs My Mother Taught Me
    with Bonnie Wagner, piano, from CD of Brahms Sonata No. 3 in D Minor and short pieces

    The above selection is from a studio recorded CD. - In contrast to a studio recording, unedited, recorded “live” selections like those which follow, offer the spontaneity of hearing a performance as it is taking place in front of an audience. Live recordings have the performance-continuity integrity resulting from each phrase belonging to the same performance as the previous phrase. They also allow the listener to hear the natural acoustics of the concert hall.
