  October 1, 2009

What a performance! I waited for a good multichannel 7th of Mahler for a very long time, now I get the best one. Jansons takes the B RSO to their best performace on this SACD. You get the first recording of the new critical edition of Mahlers 7th, so everyone will hear something new here. The ... more

unlike the former raters, i dont think this sacd is that bad. the performance is very well done, u get a moving mimi with gheorghiu (in her great days - now she isnt that good anymore), a charming alagna as alfredo and the other cast is absolutely of highest order (keenlyside, d'arcangelo,...). but ... more

a triumph! fröst does it again. on this sacd fröst raises above himself, togehter with the tapiola sinfonietta fröst plays great works from weber for clarinet and orchestra. the playing of fröst is beyond words, just heavenly. in my opionon his best performance on disk. but also the tapiola ... more
Scriabin: Preludes, Piano Sonatas Nos. 2 & 3 - Vesselin Stanev        (5 of 5 found this review helpful)
  October 28, 2006

this is a real disappointment. i thought a sacd from sony is a highlight considering the great artistic and sound quality of former releases as the tchaikovsky, bell, thomas release. first this sacd is recorded in 24/96 and not in DSD. second the sound in MC comes almost only from the right ... more

hello, it seems sony has serious problems releasing a flawless sacd. i remember the scriabin/stanev recording. i buyed the sacd and the sound only came from one side (see my review), then sony contacted me and made a complaint about my negative review... i sent them my sacd so that they can hear the flaw themself... some weeks later they send me ... more

i also dont know the mccreesh performance, sorry. of course the soloists are not up to international standard, i did not hear their name before that recording came to me. but they make their job more than good, and especially the bass is just great. in my opinion the jacobs soloists are also not up to international standard, i dont know any ... more

of course i listened to the sacd mc layer too. the discman plays the cd layer only, but this recording was done in dsd, so also the cd layer should be of better sound quality than a cd layer not recorded in dsd. i dont doubt the quality of this recording, its first class. but i just want to mention, that THIS sacd produces this sound-problem (alas ... more
