Steve,
Can you advise a specific description of this. I’d like to find it on Tidal or Qobuz.
Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick,

I believe the same orchestra also performed this selection. Although not conclusive, the same conductor and same
light brown/reddish hair clarinet player.

Does this help Nick?

It pleases me so much to see this young group do such a wonderful job playing this piece.

Cheers and great week.

Hi Steve,
The orchestra isn’t on either Tidal or Qobuz, so I just enjoyed the YouTube performances. Thanks for posting.
Nick

Your welcome Nick. That is why I stuck with YT premium. So many more selections and the quality is good enough to obtain
really great sound, although I would like to see YT go high rez.

Here is one you might like, pure percussion.

And this one again to compare recording quality.

Hi Steve,
Normally, a percussion solo wouldn’t interest me very much. But this guy was amazing. Control, dynamics and the sound was amazing. I found a couple of other YouTube Videos by Morten Lund and watched them as well. Thanks for the treat.
Nick

Again, your welcome Nick. I agree this recording is simply amazing. I have to study this selection a little more, but I think this may be the highest quality recording on YT Premium I have ever heard. The cymbals, top hats are so delicate I think I am hearing Heils, the drums, well......

I think I can confidently state that if someone doubts the quality, they need to address their musical system etc.

A few more percussion for those who like such. Each is totally different, and vary in recording quality. A littl e percussion
festival.

As one can see below, I love this song. I tried to find the best violin versions with the iconic solo.
Not in any particular order, One might be better or worse than another. I am starting with the iconic
