Which recordings?

Hopefully, the ones I asked about at the top.

As I remember it, the recordings were captured by LSO Live who had planned to release them. Philips did instead, so there could be higher resolution versions in either the LSO or Universal archives...

I thought it was always a Philips project, they just outsourced the actually making of the recording to LSO Live.

@Kal The Gergiev recordings

@Seth It was a long time ago, and my memory isn't what it was, but I remember the first mention of these recordings coming from LSO Live (ie the label), and then they suddenly turned up on Philips, and not on SACD (I remember this, as I was excited about these coming out on SACD).

They are DSD recordings

Mr Jenkins, thanks for this valuable info "from the source". It begs 2 follow-up questions:
1. Is it multichannel DSD recording?
2. Are there plans to make the high-resolution versions of these well-regarded recordings available to listeners in some way? I am under the impression that it would be eagerly welcomed by audiophiles.
