Review by raffells April 5, 2006 (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
This ones a close call for good recomend as its a live concert by a Russian and the old joke about being in a hurry can seem relevant in the opening Carneval.It is cartainly interesting and a warts and all recording with a very quiet audience.She is definitely more at home in Rachmaninov and breathtaking ? at times in the Handel.That should help describe this live performance with the emphasis on the later.Not absolutely sure of the recording quality "DSD first live recoding" stated on the cardboard multi language carton.I would have preffered a foot or so closer but otherwise very good to excellent.The filler encores are a nice bonus but the applause comes in too quickly.She also attacks the next encore before it has died down. For myself it fills a few nice gaps in my sacd catelogue.Certainly a talent to be watched..D
