Magnificent and hypnotic! I waited a long time for a great recording of The Planets and this is it. Buy with confidence!
Hiredfox, I’m curious about what 5 ch treats you refer to.
I don't like the way he rolls the chords in the opening of the 2nd Concerto, plus they also sound rushed. Aside from that, it's an enjoyable release, but Matsuev/Gergiev ...
Sorry, John, I missed your post until today. Generally I've waited about 3 weeks for Mr Sudbin's discs, but that includes shipping from the UK to the US, so I assume you'd ...
I just popped this in and from the first notes, you know you are in for something special. Ogawa has great command and colorful tone. Will report back with more later!
This just shows what is possible with SACD. A truly remarkable capturing of an instruments and the space it is in. Don't miss this if you love the organ. Plenty of marvelous ...

This title is part of an ECM series of 6 titles (so far) issued by the Japanese retailer Tower Records. As such it is only available from Tower Records.......and they don't ship internationally.
Help is at hand though. CD Japan has a proxy shopping arrangement available ($34ish USD + additional handling costs) and the first 3 titles are also on the Acoustic Sounds Site. Whether this collaboration between Tower Records/Universal Japan/ECM remains exclusive or is time limited is unknown to me.
Being from the ECM stable the packaging remains typically understated. Nothing shiny here.
The liner notes state - "DSD remastered by Christoph Stickel, 01/2017"
And what a excellent job he has done. It was beautifully recorded in the first instance and it sounds like the tapes have remained in great condition. It feels like you have a better than front row seat at the actual concert when listening to it. Compression also remains minimal. One notch up on the original vinyl.
ECM has a very deep catalogue of excellent titles. Here's hoping there will be many more.
