I used to be a very big fan of Anne Sophie. Back when she was recording with Herbert von Karajan. The Beethoven LP was revelatory. However as time passed and I accumulated ...
I have six of these discs and they are excellent. Blomstedt and his orchestra are magnificent. The multi-ch recordings are very fine. In that regard I am especially fond of ...
What frustrates is that the Sony Classical recordings are exceptional in SQ and recorded in DSD. Not having easy or fair access to recordings from a leading European orchestra ...
This guy, judging from his recording of the music of Hans Gal and a few others I have, is not half bad - pretty good actually. Anybody heard this recording?

Part of the Blue Note SACD series out of Japan, of which there are quite a few (try 20).
Details on the source used for the DSD masters in this series are pretty sketchy, but the odds seem to be that we are looking at a conversion to DSD of the 24-bit, 192 kHz masters done in the mid noughties.
They are not nearly as texturally rich and full sounding as the Mofi jazz efforts. They have that clean Japanese presentation and something of a PCM character.
This title has been issued a couple of times on SACD but I have not heard them and can't compare.
It sounds pretty good........and the bonus for me is that there are NO 'bonus' tracks. Just the album as originally fashioned.
If you like bonus tracks the AP version still seems to be available and it does have a couple bonus tracks tacked on the end.
