Hybrid Stereo SACD

Edo de Waart and the San Francisco Symphony & Chorus on SACD!

Edo de Waart conducts the San Francisco Symphony & Chorus in Edvard Grief's "Peer Gynt" Op. 23, Incidental music to Ibsen's play (excerpts), while Sir Neville Marriner conducts the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in Grieg's Holberg Suite.

The reissue of classical music masterpieces by Esoteric has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality. This series marks the first hybrid SACD release of historical recording selections that have been mainstays of the catalog since their initial release.

Experience the legendary performance in this new Super Audio CD/CD format. Not only for new followers, but also for well experienced followers of these recorded materials. All will be equally impressed by the "soul" hidden within the notes, but never before found in previously released recordings in any format.

The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master. Esoteric’s flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model Grandioso G1 and Esoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master.

Mastering Engineering: Kazuie Sugimoto (JVC Mastering Center Daikanyama Studio)

Excellent sound but has vocals

Reviewer: Frank
Didn't notice it had vocals until I had already opened the packaging although it does mention Elly Ameling, Soprano on the back of the digipak. Had to eject the disk when Solveigs Song came on due to the loud vocalist I'll probably be selling mine in the future. Also the word Philips was removed from the album cover and even from the picture included inside even though it states front cover image is from the original LP 6514 378. How strange. Not recommended at all.
