Hybrid Multichannel SACD

This is the SACD release of Kleiber’s legendary recording of the Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 & 7 from 1976. It offers superb audio reproduction of conventional stereo recordings as well as lifelike surround sound. The SACD transfer takes full advantage of the new technology, offering sound of greater warmth, depth and clarity achieved by means of a wider dynamic range and frequency response than is possible with the conventional compact disc.

"This is the finest Fifth we have had for at least a decade. It is a glorious achievement: Vienna’s answer to earlier Fifths made in London with Klemperer, and in Berlin with Karajan; and a further feather in the cap of the celebrated family Kleiber." - Gramophone

It is really amazing how 30 year old recordings are brought to life on SACD. This wonderful performance just lights up in the SACD format. Do yourself a favor and get this one!
