|this is a real disappointment. i thought a sacd from sony is a highlight considering the great artistic and sound quality of former releases as the tchaikovsky, bell, thomas release.
first this sacd is recorded in 24/96 and not in DSD.
second the sound in MC comes almost only from the right speakers, something i have never heard before. i think its a engineering problem.
to sum the sound quality up, this is a bad SACD.
the performance is quite unemotional, usually scriabin opens my heart and his preludes take you to another place. not so in this recording, its played - lets say - in a cold way.
perhaps i made a mistake buying a sacd from a artist i dont know very much. its the first stanev cd i buyed and i think also the first cd release with stanev (besides some cds which are not available anymore).
- i wonder whats up with sony releasing sacds (this one or the schumann, kauten release) with artists nobody knows and artists who obviously dont have the quality to be released by a major label. i dont also understand the bad sound quality in MC.
its a bit crazy: you dont get a sacd with villazon, rattle, (other emi or dgg artists)..., but stanev or klauten are released in sacd??!!!
