Quite a generous coupling.

Quite a generous coupling.

About an hour is hardly generous. The Miraculous Mandarin performed here is only the Suite not the full ballet.

The track lengths aren't available yet, it seems. But yes, the album should have about an hour of music on it. I'm fine with that.

While I was trying to find the track lengths, I did come across a little piece of information that will warm the cockles of your heart, Hiredfox. This SACD was recorded in DSD!

I couldn't find the name of the sound engineer, though. I wonder if it was Tomoyoshi Ezaki, who did such a fabulous job with the two previous Järvi/NHK discs (SICC-19049 and SICC-19055, both with all-Stravinsky programmes).

Indeed, the RCA Red Label brand has always been true to the DSD recording cause.

Point noted Graham, thanks for the heads up.

ALL of the Jarvi/NHK SACD titles were produced and recorded by Octavia/Exton team. I assume it was done in DSD 11,2 MHz, as since 2019 Exton has been recording in this format entirely.

I had another look around the Internet and found some additional information on the HMV Japan site. This was indeed recorded by Tomoyoshi Ezaki from Octavia. It was done in September 2021.
