The Romantic Piano Concerto 38
Rubinstein: Piano Concerto No 4
Scharwenka: Piano Concerto No 1
Marc-André Hamelin, BBC Scottish SO/ Michael Stern
Surely the Romantic Piano Concerto recording of the decade will have pianophiles the world over in raptures.
Marc-Andrés startling virtuosity can be taken for granted, but here there is also an adrenalin-fuelled excitement which is rarely captured in studio performances and which is guaranteed to involve even the most casual listener.
Conductor Michael Stern (son of Isaac) fully enters into the spirit and does magnificent things with the BBCSSO in what is his first Hyperion recording.
Also available in an astonishingly crisp hybrid SACD multichannel version.

Picked Supernature up today. The box and disc do have the SACD and stero/multi-ch logos. However my Sony DVP-NS700V doesn't recognise the first disc as a SACD. I've sent an email to Mute to ask for confirmation either way.

...which means my Sony DVP-NS700V will also not recognize disc 1 as SACD. Wonderful.

You might be ok. After some poking around it appears there's two versions of the deluxe edition of Supernature.

1. UK Version - Has SACD on the packaging, has Opendisc (app that gives access to a locked part of www.Goldfrapp.co.uk). Is NOT a SACD

2. Rest of Europe version - Has SACD on the packaging. Does not have Opendisc. Is a hyrbrid SACD

Can someone who has the rest of Europe version test this for me ? I'm going to take my UK retail copy back and order one from cdwow who appear to have the rest of europe version

Got mine from cd-wow.nl about 2 minutes ago, unpacked and dropped into my SA11s1 and YES it is the sa-cd.

Thanks Marc, I'll do that.

Unconfirmed (or at least not listed here, as far as I can see):

Dvorak: Symphonien 7 & 9: Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by James Levine, Gold SACD hybrid multichannel

Label: Edition 100

About 30 multi-channel SACDs have been released as part of the Edition 100 series so far, but they are only available to members of the Bertelsmann Club and therefore not listed here. It seems that most of the material comes from BMG (e.g. Rubinstein, Wand, Jochum) and Sony (e.g. Horowitz, Mehta, Abbado).

AMAZON.FR is a SACD multichannel (Sony DVP-NS 900)

I've pulled the amazon.co.uk etc links. The remaining ones are hopefully for the real SA-CD version.

Just to confirm Goldfrapp's new album.
My copy is a SACD+DVD... despite the back cover says hybrid SACD stereo, it is a multichannel SACD recording.

Enjoy!

What's the serial number on your copy? As far as I can determine LCDSTUMM250 is the CD+DVD version.
