Performance:   Sonics:  
MoFi weaves its magic again. I paid a premium price for this, and it was simply worth every penny. MoFi classical recuts are disappearing fast, and prices are going through the roof. If you need evidence of why this is so, look no further than this recording ...

These are very solid performances from Slatkin, but the recording is the star here. The Elite recordings from Aubort and Nickrenz are simply some of the finest analogue (or any) recordings of orchestras in real acoustic spaces ever made. And Mobile Fidelity, as always, has done them justice, in full. The results are startlingly realistic sounding in timbre, coherence, transparency and staging. They simply sound truer to life of real orchestras than most recordings you will ever be fortunate enough to hear. And I speak as a frequent aficionado of classical concerts in and around London.

On a good SACD-based system, this is a marvel.

SO, WHY NO NEW CLASSICAL SACDs, MoFI?!

Buy it whilst you can.
