Product Description

Experimental Project

Review

Tchaikovsky s Piano Concerto No. 1, with its big tunes, winning melodies (some based on Ukrainian folk-songs) and brilliant orchestration, has become the most popular of all Russian concertos. The less familiar Piano Concerto No. 3 was originally a single movement which the pianist, Sergey Taneyev, turned into a three movement work by orchestrating Tchaikovsky s sketches for his unrealised Seventh Symphony, published in 1897 as the Andante and Finale, Op.79

Album works:

1. Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23
Performed by Russian Philharmonic Orchestra with Konstantin Scherbakov Conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky

2. Piano Concerto No. 3 in E flat major, Op. post. 75
Performed by Russian Philharmonic Orchestra with Konstantin Scherbakov Conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky

3. Pieces (2, andante & finale), for piano & orchestra, Op. post. 79 (completed by Taneyev, also arr. for 2 pianos)
Performed by Russian Philharmonic Orchestra with Konstantin Scherbakov Conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky

Recorded in Studio No. 5, KULTURA State TV & Radio Company, Moscow, from 14th to 17th March, 2003 at 24 bit High Definition Audio. --Surround Records

Technically this is not a Blu-ray Disc but a dual-layer DVD which uses the AVCHD and DTS-HD Master Audio codecs in order to play in a Blu-ray Disc Player. And play it does, within reason. Using 3 current high-end Blu-ray players (LG BD390, Samsung BD-P2500 and Panasonic DMP-BD80), all with the latest firmware applied, the results are mixed. On 2 of the 3 players, set to "bitstream" mode, I was eventually able to pass a DTS-HD Master Audio stream to a compatible preamp/processor via HDMI for playback of the audio track. (BTW, there *IS* no video track here -- it's an audio-only Blu-ray Disc). When working properly, the DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 channel 24-bit 96Khz track here sounds phenomenal and the performance is clean and enjoyable. Those with compatible gear are in for a treat. But if you want your player to be able to do the decoding, this is where the trouble begins.

On the Panasonic BD80 (firmware 2.2), set to PCM mode (internal decoding), the sampling rate drops down to 48 Khz - still good quality but not the 96 KHz as advertised. On the Samsung BD-P2500, any attempts to decode the track internally fail with a nasty crackling sound. On the LG BD390, I was unable to get sound from this disc in any mode: bitstream, PCM stereo, DTS re-encode and multi-channel PCM modes all failed to pass a valid stream to my preamp/processor for decoding.

This is one of only a couple of recordings available which use full 7.1-channel 24-bit 96 KHz DTS-HD Master Audio sound, and perhaps for good reason, because decoding it internally seems to be a task beyond the capabilities of most current players, even those that are supposed to support internal decoding of DTS-HD MA and which do behave properly with other DTS-HD titles.

Unless you can confirm that your specific player and receiver or processor will work with this title in advance then it may not be worth a purchase.

Purchased this Bluray twice and both times it failed to play--very, very disappointing. There is something very wrong with this particular production. Purchased the Rachmaninov and it played great. Be careful about this particular Bluray. I complained about it, but, of course, no one bothered to heed and I am sure there are others out there. Beware!!

I purchased this so called Blu-Ray disc twice but both discs
were immediately rejected by my Panasonic BD-55
Blu-Ray player. There was something very wrong with a company releasing
titles that were authored incorrectly like this. I had to return
the defective products at my own expense to get a refund back.

I have five other Surround Record 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio that play just fine, although one will play on a Panasonic BD30 and not on a Panasonic BD60, both with current firmware updates. The Tchaikovsky recording does not play on either Panasonic BR player. One other one, the Bach had three noticeable defects on the recording that were not the result of a scratch, but actually encoded in two of the recordings that I had to return. Another one, the Mussorgsky was another recording that would not play at all on either Panasonic BR player. I suppose that I should keep my fingers crossed because I have never had a BR DVD film that did not play, so that is aggravating to run into problems that have to do with an all audio recording. e-mails to Surround Records have been unanswered. So, some work and some don't. When a Surround recording runs, it is fantastic, when it doesn't, it is highly disappointing.

This is an excellent recording. The music audio quality is excellent. The Blu-ray disk is audio only (as the title says). This Blu-ray disk does have a strange problem, it will not play through without loosing audio output (somewhere in Chapter 5). If you restart chapter 5 playing, all is fine. Maybe it is just this disk???

I am very upset for this product.
This is not a real Blu Ray disc but a Blu Ray recorded (something like a CD-R).
I have a Sony PS3 and a beautiful Denon DVD-A1UD hi-end player but this disc disc do not works (both the players are updated at the last firmaware).
It is a SHAME that Amazon sell an "home made" blu ray that is absolutely different in comparison of industrial quality products.
I am sendin back this fake disc.
PS: The cover and the label disc are printed with a copier and PC printer!!!!

Unfortunately, I didn't cared reading other reviews before buying this, I don't know why amazon let this kind of things be sold in here. The disc is a BD-R printable, the cover is printed with an inkjet printer, the box is a generic box of very poor quality. It costs like an original but it's a copy.
