The 2 Releases are: Giulini conducting the Vienna Philharmonic on Bruckner 9 and Karajan conducts Bruckner 8 with the same orchestra. These are Recordings from DG.
Ubertrout, I've commented on this before several times, so I make it short:
1.) Universal and Universal Japan are totally independend companies.
2.) The remasterings that ...
We should feel happy (or maybe relieved) that an exceptional artist of this caliber wants her work recorded in the very best sound quality.
I was fortunate to hear Dörken live last summer at the Gstaad festival in Switzerland. Her playing, her artistry was breath-taking. I have never heard anything like it. Oh, ...
I found this a very disappointing performance. Dull no passion...…………...give me Fisher or Solti any day !
It seems to me that you are the only person still willing to submit reviews of new SACD releases for which I thank you personally very sincerely.
A very large proportion of ...
I would like to add my thanks to John's for the review. In my humble opinion the decision to only allow reviews from a small handful of people was a grave mistake and has led ...

The 2019 SACD issues of Some Other Time and Another Time are from Tower Japan: https://tower.jp/article/feature_item/2019/05/31/0101
Description from the Tower Japan web page, via Google Translate. Note that 1 = Some Other Time, 2 = Another Time: The Hilversum Concert.
"Main features of this release

・ Mastering from the original master owned by the label for this release

* Use sound source and mastering:
・ New mastering in Japan for the release from the label-owned first generation original master

・ The CD layer is also new mastering this time
・ Mastering engineer: Mr. Hiroyuki Tsuji (mastering at King Records Sekiguchidai Studio in May 2019)"
I own both releases in 192/24 AIFF, from 2xHD, who might have upsampled the 96/24 files of Another Time.
According to the liner notes of Some Other Time by producer Zev Feldman:
"In November 2015, we received digital transfers in high resolution, of the original analog tapes. These transfers provided us with extremely faithful, high-resolution copies to work from."
Feldman doesn't cite the resolution of the files that were provided to Resonance by MPS in Germany. Likely, the same sets of files were used by Tower Japan.
Both albums were well engineered, though Jack DeJohnette was mixed too low on Some Other Tme.
