Posted Tuesday, February 19, 2008 by Richard L. I got this disc as I had always liked Khachaturian's Sabre Dance. I picked this version as the write-up on it here at Acoustic Sounds described it as a lively rendering of the work. Neither the write-up, the performance or the HDAD disc disappoint on that score. In fact, I'd say if anyone claims classical music is boring, hand them this one as they obviously haven't heard it! Energy, Vitality, Enthusiasm are how I'd describe it. Even the slow pieces ripple with a subtle sense of passion and life. Including a CD is a nice touch as it can be played in the car or in a portable. You'll want to hear the DVD-Audio when you can, though, for as much as the CD is convenient, the DVD-Audio flat-out rules for sound. I just love how strings, horns and percussion come to life on DVD-Audio. Check out the track Lezghinka for an example. Not only does the percussion come to life but the reverberations in the hall are also wonderfully presented. This disc is a definite "keeper".

I Didn't Know What I Was in For!

Posted Monday, March 19, 2007 by Jeff This recording was purchased for a friend as a joke; I'm coming clean here. This was a gag gift and it turned out the joke was on me. This has to be one of the most fantastic recordings I've ever heard. These songs are spectacular and..., well, French, but you owe it to yourself to give it a listen. If you own state of the art equipment, you WILL BE BLOWN AWAY!
