The most stunning performance of these works imaginable, in better sound than they have ever had. I ripped DSD64 tracks from the RCA SACD, ostensibly made from the studio masters, and they were the best sound these releases ever had. However, the HDTT tracks, particularly at high bit rates (I have the DSD 256) show further layers of air, depth and texture which I had never suspected were there. ) The performances of course are, by miles, the best one could hope to dream of. Riener managed the miracle of building, tyranizing and terrifying one of the greatest orchestras in history, yet nothing sounds tyrannized or terrified -- just fervent and glowing.
An outstanding transfer of one of the most gripping and visceral performances of this classic.
Love it. Nice clean spacious sound.
The Pure DSD sound is wonderful, and Fritz Reiner and the Chicago Symphony are terrific, as usual.
This 60-year-old recording is still outstanding and does not need to shy away from comparison with today's recordings.
