Schoenberg: Transfigured Night, Chamber Symphony No. 1 - Mehta        (4 of 5 found this review helpful)
  October 27, 2004

I believe this is currently the only SACD of these pieces, and it's a joy to have them on this format. Verklaerte Nacht is wonderfully transparent, and very nicely paced. The detail in the orchestration is captured very well. When the first chairs emerge for chamber passages, the sound is truly ... more

Beethoven & Mendelssohn: Violin Concertos - Heifetz/Munch        (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
  September 28, 2004

My goodness! What an incredible delight this SACD turns out to be. Heifetz is mostly isolated on the center channel, and the orchestra is at times at (realistic) dynamics that would cover the soloist otherwise. It's great fun to be able to know that I can just turn up the center channel if I ... more
