“Sonically, this disc as good as it can get. Orchestral instruments are reproduced with very high fidelity. The soloists are kept in front of the orchestra but not too far upfront. The chorus is superbly mixed. Instrumental detail is always preserved. Louder orchestral and choral outbursts are very well reproduced. There is a sense of very natural dynamics. It’s as if the engineers placed their microphones and then let the performers handle the music’s contrasts – as opposed to the engineers constantly playing around to adjust various levels to make them louder or softer.”
