A superb edition, sound exceptional on a hi-end analogic system.

Have listened to the digital version of this recording for years. Always felt the presentation was slightly glossy and the piano slightly pingy.

This, the analogue version, sheds a whole new light on this recording and is now my go to version. Kept the CD for the car and the cottage :)

The vinyl is well pressed and the mastering is excellent.

This release is somehow a mystery to me...I read mostly enthusiastic reviews about this release, I think even in the SHF the reviews were mostly positive. But every single copy of this I tried was distorted, noisy with loud clicks and had some weird echoing effects. The several copies I listened to were very far from beeing "audiophile" as advertised. Sony does not give me any answer to my emails. So this is one of the most dissatisfying releases I ever bought.

Great sounding reissue. Beautifully packaged and vinyl pressing is superb...no issues whatsoever.

I was expecting some spectacular sound after reading everything that's written on that hype sticker, however the record has a lot of pops and sounds annoyingly dirty. Plus, there are clearly some moments when the pieces start to play quiet on the background before they actually begin and that says a lot about the quality of the press. A disappointing release, although the cover is printed well and the record is really good-looking.
