I not familiar with the classical guitar offering. But I am familiar with the label in general. They are a Dutch company that specializes big box sets of recordings from unknown artists. Many of them are sub-professional. Many performances are poor (student quality). I personally have tried several times to listen to Brilliant Classics, and did not manage. Quality of performance was too poor. I recommend to stay away from them. You will be disappointed. I am in favor of buying Dutch products (my name is not van Handel for nothing). Just not this one.Dirck Nagy wrote: ↑Wed Sep 27, 2017 3:32 amHi all
Is anyone here familiar with the recording label "Brilliant Classics"? They seem to have a lot of material out there, and some of their recording artists are well-known. (i.e. Lorenzo Micheli)
ANy opinions on their Classical Guitar offerings? ... I have their "Favourite Guitar Concertos" release, but haven't heard any others.
My experience exactly. They provide a few good recordings to sell the CD, then fill up the rest with awful stuff. I admire joachim33's sober evaluation that it is worth the price. I am too Dutch for that. I feel that I have been cheated. Or at least, that I have to store a lot of recordings that I cannot listen to. And storage space is expensive. Perhaps real estate is cheaper in southern Sweden than next to the border fence in Israel.
