Review by Audiofriend June 21, 2005 (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
A very fine (first!) recording of a beautiful piece of german music! This SACD contains two version of the Brahms ``Doppelkonzert´´ op. 102. The first one is a work-over by Cord Garben where the Violine is replaced by other instruments (and other changes I guess). It is nice, but I prefer the original version on SACD 2. The first SACD is 35:25, the second 33:28, that makes together 68:53 which would have easily fitted on ONE SACD. But here we have now two SACDs for the price of 38. That's far too much. But the recording is great! Very energetic! Unfortunately there's no subwoofer (LF) track, which is silly for a cello-concert. I think I needs it, but it's still a full and warm and very direct sounding SACD. I couldn't find any information on the source for this SACD in the booklet, I guess it's PCM. It was recorded in March and Oktober 2004. The music and performance deserves five stars in my opinion. I don't give it 5 because of the far too high (rip-off) price. ONE SACD would have done the job much better!
