With this kind of re-re-releases I think Universal (Decca/DG) hopes to interest customers in a super-super-Audio format: the Bluray Audio. So: no video content on this disc, only a start screen on which you can choose to go directly to the individual movements of this symphony. If you put this Bluray in a Bluray player (I use a Denon) not connected to a TV-screen but to an amplifier the disc starts automatically. Don’t forget you only get a 2 channel stereo from this disc, so if you are lucky having a 5.1 or 7.1 surround system it won’t give you any benefits. Consider that many SACD’s do have a surround option (SACD Surround / SACD Stereo / Stereo on BIS discs for instance) it seems to me those discs are more interesting for audio enthusiasts than the one under review.
For Universal this is a cheap way to try if customers are interested: take some existing repertoire from the Golden Years (the 1960s 1970s), refurbish the tapes or the already existing digital file, find a marketing strategy, produce a Bluray, and of you go.

The performance is a good one, but not exceptional. I can recall 10 other versions in Universal’s catalogue that’re as good/great as this one: Solti with the CSO, Haitink with the CO etc. Point is you’ve to be interested in the Pure Audio thing but evaluating this disc I’m not totally won over. It sounds heavily produced, shifts in volume by the brass are really manipulated at the editing table and they’re sometimes disorientating. The moments the roof have to go of, the volume seems to be turned down, a strange effect. Violins en masse sometimes sound thin, well that’s something I really have never heard in Vienna! The bass on the other hand is very good – although manipulated too – and the Fernorchester effects are well done.

This was recorded in the mid 1970s where a 40 channel mixer was used giving a more studio sound this is the first time i have had this work my first was Mahler's symphony No.8. This is totally different and took my time to get to like the work but i like the symphony after some plays and the recording is detailed with a fine depth to the sound showing of the fine definition on Blu-Ray Audio but it is only in stereo on this disc a surround sound version would have sounded good but still very good value for money from Amazon.

Pretty good performance all round. Recording is great. Happy with it. There are other performances on CD that I prefer, but this one is worthwhile.
