Mike, I feel like I can almost recommend this based on postings at Steve Hoffman. This is a current rave of teh audiophile community, not that HM does anything wrong anyway.
I have been looking high and low for it recently but may give up and go to Elusive. They certainly gave excellent advice at their HE2004 booth when they steered me to the new Jacintha bossa nova album.
I am also looking for the Miraculous Mandarin by Bartok. Bluebird's Castle by Bartok (Fischer) is at Tower Records by the way and it is very good.
Seth, I was happy to hear both that the performance is great as well as the sound. BOTH.
There are great sounding recordings and ones that are performed well, so if I can get the ones that are both... you know what, the hell with it, I don't have to explain my listening preferences to anyone.
I'm gonna go back to listening to my Oscar Peterson SACD, which is, oh gosh, look at that- performed well AND sounds awesome! Wow.
