Review by Luukas January 11, 2015 (4 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
This was my first Blu-ray Audio. DTS HD Master Audio recording is absolutely the clearest and brightest, it is even better than Direct Stream Digital (DSD) SACD! But it is a pity that this is only stereo, there isn't multi-channel mix.

Interpretations are excellent. It is good idea to start this disc with Corigliano's Fantasia on an Ostinato. It is written for solo piano, and Hélène Grimaud really understands this music. Beethoven's Fantasia rises to the air with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra & Choir.
But the disc's real culmination is Arvo Pärt's Credo. I haven't never heard so impressive performance! Salonen's tempi are peaceful which means that he leads his team to the great adventure.
Warmly recommend!

Overall results: ****1/2 (Performance), ***** (Recording), **** (Packaging)
