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.
If you like the Karajan/BPO version, this one is in my opinion, a more accurate approach to the work (only in the ghostly Adagio Karajan goes one head in advance) and definitely it is far better sounding. If you, as I do, like the Dorati/LSO version, most probably will find difficult, as I do, what of both is "better" or the "must have" one, musically and good sounding. From my point of view, the three aforementioned conform the "ace trio" among the recorded versions of this Bartók's masterpiece. So, if you do not have this Reiner/Chicago Symphony Orchestra version, I strongly recommend it for you. Won't be disappointed.
