“And on top there is the superior SA-CD quality. In particular for such heavily orchestrated works this recording and reproduction technology is a blessing.”
“It’s so good to see that new releases on SACD aren’t limited to standard repertoire, and this excellent performance of Franz Schmidt’s masterful Fourth Symphony remains competitive regardless of the format in which you listen…(Yakov Kreizberg) builds plenty of intensity into the Adagio’s wrenching climaxes, and the scherzo section culminates in a very satisfying collapse, the horns doing themselves proud. It’s a totally idiomatic performance, capped by a touchingly poetic coda. …The coupling seals the deal” Artistic quality 9 - Sound quality 9
“I have many PentaTone SA-CDs and they are almost uniformly excellent. I actually bought this one to see how bad it could be. After listening four times I must state that this disc is not bad at all – it is excellent. The sound is even better than many of my others”.
