Performance:   Sonics:  
This is my bargain sacd of the Year so far..Total suprise ..The recording in stereo is so close to the DSD best Im giving it the full 5 stars..As is the performance?...I have 3 versions of the symphony on vinyl all fairly different and this beats them all..Leppard has not been someone I would jump for joy at in the past...probably because by vinyl discs of his are early in his career..This is a very broad brush version of the work with all the i s dotted.Even subtle changes to the big main theme in the 20 minutes long first movement add to make this terrifc symphony an even better work..Strings sound fabulous and at one point reminded me of Rachmaninov..hope someone in the future can pick up on this and point out why?... .This like most of the Membrans is a concert type presentation in stereo...obviously in a nice rich soundic accoustic...The two other works which follow are also done expertly...guess what...theres virtually no gaps..I would suggest you stop after the symphony and will need to take a big breath.....I know theres another Big Version of this work out there...IMO this wins....for those who referred to ebay frizzbies???.BUY IT NOW...

Picked this up this afternoon sealed and brand new for a few pounds and what a cracker of a disc this. Terrific performance of the Franck Symphony in D minor along with 2 pieces unknown to me - Les Eolides and Le Chausseur maudit.

Cannot fault performances or recording so buy buy buy - a real bargain.
