This recording is absolutely beautiful--coherent but with every detail crystal clear. (Of course, it has been impressive in its earlier manifestations, but this dsf file is a further step in clarity and impact). The sparkling sound world of Fireworks is breathtaking. Top to bottom balance is impressive in the Firebird with even low level transients sounding clearly in complex passages. The delicious combination of textures in Tango make this a 'demonstration' quality band. I was less impressed by the Ancient Aires and Dances recording and so came to this recording with some concerns. I needn't have worried, I was really swept away. Highly recommended.
