Performance:   Sonics:  
I will simply defer to what Polly Nomial has already said.

This is a SUPERB disc. I dare say a Reference Level performance and Reference Recording for all other Reference Recordings. This is for me THE example SACD that fulfills the promise of the medium. As good as DSD64 gets.

I would add that this, along with most all recordings on the Pentatone label, is in Native DSD, even though the above specifications do not indicate as such.

Bravo to the very, very lovely Ms. Steinbacher, and bravo to PolyHymnia.
