5.0 out of 5 stars THE TWIN 32 FOOT PIPES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saint-Saens - Symphony No. 3 'Organ'/Poulenc - Organ Concerto/Barber - Toccata Festiva (Audio CD)
I wanted a decent version of Saint Saens 3rd symphony, the fact it has 2 other works was just an added bonus. I am perfectly happy with the performances, but it's just a personal thing and there are several other reviews that go into much detail.

However what is not just my personal opinion is regarding the sound quality and in particular how well the 32 foot pipes speak. I might sound a little moronic here or like an anorak, but my sole reason for choosing this version was to demo my massive monitor speakers AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST I KNOW FOR THIS PURPOSE, GROUND SHAKING, I WAS FRIGHTENED WHEN I FIRST HEARD IT AS IT FELT JUST LIKE A FEW MONOR EARTHQUAKES I HAVE LIVED THROUGH. That aside I really love most kinds of music and really am not an anorac, it is rare for me to choose something as a demo only.

So if you like the performances in the sound samples that Amazon provide, you really can't go wrong in buying this CD as sonically, having listened to very many others, it is the best currently available. I am listening to it as I write, but with the volume turned low, the earth tremors were somewhat distracting, highly recommended.

PS I played it as a CD not as a SACD, it is a dual layer disc, fully compatible with either format
