Performance:   Sonics:
Perfect surround sound recording. I won't add anything to the previous reviews other than to say that the performances are just as good! Recorded at the Italian Institute in Budapest where Channel recorded the Ivan Fischer Rachmaninov 2. The recordings are quite different
Where the Channel is a huge, smooth mass of sound this Bartok is much sharper and more immediate; not just a product of the different music either. I now feel that I even prefer this even more than the Channel recording!

Performance:   Sonics:    
In comparing recordings, I was trying to compare Kocsis and Eschenbach.
The sound for the Kocsis is more alive and real.
The performance is one of the best.
It has the requisite flavor and spice. The extras are a real bonus as well.
If you enjoy Bartok, get this recording.
when you compare recordings, it really depends on your preference.
This will stay in my collection.
