This is a very good stereo SACD recording. But don't expect surround sound - it isn't there. I wouldn't disagree with other reviewers positive evaluations.. but what a shame to miss the chance to produce this particular musical extravaganza in 5.1!

Still the best! 2 Dec 2009
By Lance Friedel - Published on
The original CD version of this was one of the first CDs I bought back in the 1980s, and it's been a favorite ever since. Shaw's shaping of the work and his attention to detail is amazing, and the performance of the ASO and chorus, as well as the three soloists, is beyond praise. And the recording quality even on the original CD was demonstration-worthy.
This new SACD is even better. There is even greater depth and realism to the sound, even in stereo (this is a stereo-only SACD). Plus two marked improvements over the original CD: there are now 25 separate tracks (instead of four!), and a full libretto with English and German translations is included. Highly recommended!

Carmina Burana @ its' finest! 22 May 2012

Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony and Adult/Youth Choruses deliver big-time on this recording. Telarc engineers capture the drama and the scale of this work in spades; however, some early digital artifacts do seep into the recording, a few "snaps" reminiscent of ticks on an LP. All three soloists give virtuoso performances. The symphony captures the rhythmic timing changes with aplomb, and the chorus handles the speed changes with grace and articulation that I have rarely heard before. The foundation of the pace is set by the percussion section, and they do an outstanding job! Unique to this performance is the use of an 11' bass drum, which resonates throughout, and gives heretofore unheard "feeling" to the performance. Easily one of my favorite pieces, and one of my favorite performances/interpretations. If you love this piece, pick up this SACD, you won't be disappointed.
