I always loved this performance, and it is absolutely stunning on SHM SACD. Exactly what this performance needed!

Strangely, this wasn't mastered in Europe from the master tapes directly to DSD like the other recent SHM-SACDs from Universal, but from a 24/96 copy, by Bob Ludwig.

Didn't Solti record this twice with the CSO? Which recording is this one?

This is the earlier one, from 1970.

Claude: interesting, but this sounds better to me than most of the other SHM SACDs released last year.
