Great to see another SACD release by Channel as nowadays this seems to be rarity - most of the new releases have been conventional CDs only which is a pity.

Jared told us a few years ago that the only SACD they will release in future will be new performances by Ivan Fischer and Rachel Podger, the only artists that are self-sustaining in terms of sales. Every other new recording is available as a DSD download. Can't believe RB-CD is worth buying.

A shame. Channel made some of the best recordings ever in sonic terms.

Given the Honeck/Pittsburgh release of the Fifth, I'm surprised that Fischer decided to start there. Perhaps it will be interpretively quite different.

Euell, what do you mean ”to start there”? This is continuation to Beethoven: Symphonies 4 & 6 - Fischer and Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 - Fischer, so this isn’t the first one.
