Verified Purchase
I purchased this disc to obtain an alternate interpretation of Rubenstein's ballet music from "The Demon" and was instantly disappointed by Eiji Oue's extremely s-l-o-w interpretation, as compared to a very fine reading (with warmer sonics) available from the Wuppertal Symphony under George Hanson, who play like world-beaters, by the way, on MDG. Although the SACD sound is decent, it does not contain the blockbuster sonics I had expected. That said, some tracks sound better than others. I have many Reference Recordings in my collection and almost all of them (recorded using the HDCD process) sound better than this one; try Oue's Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances, or either of the recent Kansas City Symphony CDs under Michael Stern, to name three. Even if you have a dedicated SACD player, as I do, I can't recommend this disc is you already own the previously issued version. I'm glad to see Reference Recordings finally starting to issue back catalogue on SACD, but this one left me cold.
