Discussion: The art of Paniagua

If you liked Paniagua's LA ESPAÑA on BIS SACD, you will also love this five-disc Blu-Ray set from Harmonia Mundi. The sound is awesome, but one drawback is that the onscreen display is entirely in Japanese.

Even though I did not see this information made explicit, I assume that this set includes La Folia, previously issued on HM multichannel SACD. There are no mch tracks on this Blu Ray set, are there?

Check out my review of this title, where I list the component discs, which include La Folia. The tracks are stereo only, on both the SACD and blu-ray boxed sets from Japan. The blu-ray has a choice of 24/96 or 24/192 stereo, and I listened to the latter with awe.

Thanks for clarifying. So is it a mistake that La Folia de la Spagna - Gregorio Paniagua is listed here as multichannel? Not that I'm in any danger of finding a copy for sale at a humane price

Zeus explained in a post quite a while back that some of the early Harmonia Mundi SACD releases were in pseudo-multichannel. He was referring to the LA FOLIA disc specifically. There is so much interplay going on back and forth between the two stereo channels on this recording already that the multi-channel is probably gilding the lily.

Probably for most. I love it.
