The performances are definitive. The sound on the LP engineered by RCA's top team and recrded on 3 tracks in 1958 are breathtaking.. Recorded in Sympony Hall in Boston. I can only imagine what the SACD will be like as all these releases have been superior to the original LP.

Addendum. The SACD is even more remarkable with increased clarity, and things you don't hear on the LP. Great job RCA.
