Although I have several CDís of this work It has been at least ten years since I played a recording of Scheherazade on my system, just tired of it.

Well, the other day I came across this Youtube video played by this youth orchestra, the name was strange so I clicked on the link and believe it or not I ended up listening to the entire performance, these kids really did a superb job.

Ok, I am fired up, would anyone recommend a state of art SACD of this work, not interested in Reiner CSO, I have that one, is there any real fine SACD of this work, there is the recent Chandos release highly criticized for not having a filler, how is the SQ on that? any other SACD?

Vahe

The Reiner recording has been released twice, with different mastering.

Yes, but armenian was asking for SACDs.

The Penguin guide to the 1000 finest Classical recordings considers the Reiner SACD version to be the best.
