5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific and convenient., 5 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mahler: Symphony No.2 - "Resurrection" (DECCA The Originals) (Audio CD)
This performance is terrific on two counts .
Firstly the actual performance , and the remastered sound , is quite excellent .
The sound very good considering its vintage .
An additional plus is the fact that it is on a single disc , so avoiding the need to change discs , as is the case on some other versions of this particular symphony .
As for the last point , why SACD isn't used to enable up to about 100 mins in SACD mode only for the longer symphonies , is something I can't quite understand .
I have purchasesd some SACD only discs from CD Japan , and it is common to have discs of up to 100 minutes in SACD only format .
As SACD is a popular format for the majority of classical music lovers , why don't they have Mahler's symphonies which exceed the capacity of a single conventional CD issued in this format , so us who have SACD players , aren't restricted in this way ?
