The Cleveland Orchestra is the aristocrat among American orchestras (The Telegraph) and its conductor, Franz Welser-Möst, rules his subjects with a velvet glove. Indeed, velvet and silk keep showing up in descriptions of the Clevelanders sound under its principal conductor. The First Symphony is Welser-Möst s chance to let Brahms mellow, silky sound (The Guardian) unfurl about the stage of London s Royal Albert Hall during one of the prestigious BBC Promenade Concerts. In the frenetically applauded (Die Presse) concert recorded at the splendid Golden Hall of Vienna s Musikverein, Franz Welser-Möst leads his devoted and exemplarily precise musicians (Die Presse) in a rendition that polishes every detail to make the Brahms Second Symphony glow from within. In the evolution of Brahms symphonic oeuvre, his penultimate Third Symphony unites the brightness of the Second with the monumentality of the Fourth. Die Presse applauded the concert in which Franz Welser-Möst performed the Symphony as structurally highlighted, vividly sketched details modelled with great subtlety . Welser-Möst offers a lean, propulsive performance (The Plains Dealer) of the Fourth Symphony. The swift pace in his hands reflects the conductor s quest for a distinctive, far-from-mainstream interpretation. Brahms rousing Academic Festival Overture and Violin Concerto op. 77 bear witness to a composer at the height of his abilities, a mature master of large-scale masterpieces. The Violin Concerto demands extreme technical proficiency. As if to exemplify this, violinist Julia Fischer gears herself from the very start of this emotionally searing work to maintaining a restrained yet passionate tone. Yefim Bronfman has the uncanny ability to play large without stridency, to handle the most delicate passages without losing presence, and to play everything in between with a ravishing sense of tonal colour. In the Second Piano Concerto Welser-Möst and Bronfman brought pulsing energy to the concerto s second movement, setting up an oasis of calm for the third that segued immediately into the genial finale, whose last chords were nearly obliterated by roars of approval from the audience. Laced into his forceful performance of Piano Concerto No. 1 was a surprising element of fury, as if the pianist had become unhinged momentarily: and yet Bronfman was also wholly present, taking time in relaxed passages to savour every second.

Dear Valechek, help! Repeated CRC control (SHA1) error for BRAHMS CYCLE BD 01.part08.rar to BRAHMS CYCLE BD 01.part11.rar, in spite of re-downloading (

Even when the file extension is modified in .RAR after downloading, WinRAR cannot recognise it, neither repair it by consequence

So there's a real problem. Can you solve it? Because I have downloaded 32 Gib on 93, but if this can't be fixed, what the use, except wasting my credit?

Thanks “by the way” for you multiple so valuable posts!

I have asked this question at multiple sites like this and have never received an answer - why do all the hosters on Israbox use such slow download services? If everyone just used one download service, I would pay it. But there is no way I can pay for several different download services per month. I have an ISP account that has the capability of 1.5M per second download speed, yet all the (free) accounts provided on Israbox only download at about 25K per second. There are accounts on Web sites such as Radio me la Sudas that use Zippyshare that allow full download speeds (more than 1M per second) that also do not have time restrictions - as soon as a download ends, you can start another download. I can download a 300M file in about 3 minutes, where on Israbox it can take 3 to 6 hours. I would just like an honest explanation.

This Brahms file is a good example - it will probably take three months to download all of the files, when if you used different services, it would only take a few days. Again, if everyone used a single service, I would pay the monthly fee, but I will not pay for multiple services.

I have to update my comment - at this time, the Deposit File account is downloading at 5K per second. This is ridiculous, even for a free download.

Deposit File is now downloading at 3.4K per second. Really? Why would you use a service like this? It says it will take two days to download one file out of 95 files. So, really, it will take people 190 days to download this Brahms offering? That's like six months! Shame!

Please answer why you are offering such poor download services.

You might try integrators such as, but there are sometimes uh difficulties between some providers and this intermediary (then it goes back to your present predicament).
