The most remarkable aspect of this recording is the sound quality. The recording was made using a 20-bit process and the resulting data was carefully dithered to 16 bits. This approach has resulted in a recording that captures, in the Sinfonia Antartica, both the high percussion sounds and the incredibly deep bass of the organ [in this case, an electronic organ, not a pipe organ]. The performance is a fine one, with slightly faster tempos than most other recordings, but this only helps to keep the sense of forward momentum. The movement superscriptions are placed at the end of the disc and can be programmed in if desired. I found the reader, David Timson, not to my liking - someone with a voice that projected more would have been a better choice. I haven't listened to Symphony No. 8 yet, so no review or rating of that.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
