5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning sound & performance 15 May 2011
By ChrisWN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have just over 100 classical music SACD's & if there was one I would put on to impress guests with my musical taste & system, this is it. Sonically it blows away any other SACD I own, only Pink Floyd's DSOTM comes close. At times the volume & pitch of the violin is so powerful (without screeching) I almost wince. I can't believe how well they were able to reproduce sound loudly, but without any distortion of the sound. The softest passages are crystal clear and louder passages command attention without jolting you. I only listen on 2.0, so I can't tell you how well surround works on this, but with such phenomenal reproduction, 3D isn't needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars First DXD recording from 2L 23 April 2012
By Neaklaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Marianne Thorsen and the Trondheim Solistene bring the listener a wonderful program of W.A. Mozart's Violin Concerti 3,4,5. on Two discs the first is Hybrid SACD the second, at least with my set is a regular red book CD. As for DXD that stands for Digital Extreme Definition or 32 bit 352khz., that is to say the recording is being
done at such a high bit rate then is mixed down to DSD for SACD and the regular CD
The sound is Audiophile to say the least. But all the great audiophile recording techniques in the world cannot help a poor performance. Fortunatly this one is a winner. I can only hope that someday they will get together and record concertos 1&2
as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Music Recordings 30 Jun 2014
By Pacific Northwest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is my first 2L Nordic Sound experience and I am greatly impressed. Supplied with the package was one disc of normal CD format, and the second disc was the High Definition SACD format. I had purchased a Hybrid disc before from another label that had CD format version and SACD format on same disc but different layer - and my standard player could not read either layer from the disc. Anyway, the recording was great and the music was great as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning in every way 25 May 2014
By J. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Does the world need yet another recording of Mozart Violin Concerti? In this case, the answer is a resounding YES! This album comes with two separate discs of the same recording. One is dedicated SACD while the other is a normal Redbook CD. I've listened to this recording repeatedly in both 5-channel SACD and 2-channel stereo, and the sound quality and engineering is of the highest order. If you have a system that is capable of resolving the detail that is recorded in this album, you are in for a treat! Even in stereo, the soundstage is expansive and every fine detail is heard. The soundstage was so expansive that I was convinced the 2-channel stereo recording was playing in multi-channel. Of course, the SACD is even better. In several cadenzas, the soloist plays at pianissimo, and yet what glorious detail is still contained within that very soft volume. 10 stars for sound quality. 20 stars! It does not get any better than this. This is a REFERENCE recording to showcase a reference stereo system.

The artistic merit also deserves 5 stars. Many will consider purchasing Julia Fischer's recording on Pentatone records. While both recordings are outstanding with super audio quality, Thorsen's recording with the Trondheim Soloists sounds more intimate while Fischer's violin sounds a little more recessed in the backdrop of a larger orchestra. The details show through only when the volume is turned up. Buy them both! :) I only wish that Thorsen and the Trondheim Soloists could have recorded the other Mozart violin concerti.

I have yet to be disappointed in the sound engineering from any 2L recording. This Norwegian label definitely knows that it is catering to audiophiles.
