    2nd pressing to be released on 12 January 2024 for 55 €, so don't feed the sharks.

      Before you dig too deep into your pockets: The limited edition was unfortunately a joke by DG - because there is a 2nd pressing that will be released on February 16, 2024... so someone wants to cash in again! But everyone who paid a lot of money for the so-called limited edition is being taken for a ride - my gosh...

        Great transfer of org recordning, little pushed in top dynamically otherwise great! Optimal cont' their clicks and pops tradition even if they are better nowadays, just acceptable. Played on TechDas - Kuzma 4P - Ortofon Diamond

          No words to describe this - the original source is at the top of the best-ever made classical music on vinyl. I always found it a bit sad that DG records, with great artists and performances, were somehow below the standard in sonic terms (although accessible and affordable). Now, these are on the opposite side. Much respect for the work of DG technicians. Well done. In great style!!!

              I have only given this a single spin, but it is wonderful. The instruments have air & soundstage space yet are not artificially isolated. Excellent pressing, too.

                This release is wonderful! The pressing is dead quite and flat. The recording has a lush string tone, well defined instruments positions, and a wide and deep sound stage. I must disagree with the previous reviewer, as the bass is there, and lots of well defined bass. Which is quite important for this piece, as the double bass surely anchors the whole presentation. Now, he/she has a point in terms of the aggressiveness, which I think (in my system) is only somewhat present in the violin, which is a characteristic of the Emerson Quartet playing.... But this is a minute issue in my opinion.

                A must have!

                  As you can see from the insert this LP had been mastered via IEC/CCIR. In fact is CCIR (tested).How on earth could possibly sound good when plaied via a standard (RIAA) phono stage?. The soundstage height is short, every instrument is very agressive and wants to embellish the others, the low frequencies are without definition, the high ones without sparkle etc. But when it is plaied via CCIR the sound quality is incredible. So avoid this LP unless you have a phono stage with CCIR EQ curve. And please DG treat us better, after all it's very expensive.

                    Extremely well done reissue. Pressing is quite and flat. But, most importantly, it is an excellent performance with lots of details and deep and wide sound stage. String tone is lush and the piano is well recorded (placed between violin and viola) and behind the strings.

                      I cant be happier. One of the biggest surprises for me this year and i buy a lot of audiophile records in jazz, rock and soul. Now this is classical music’s answer to the One Steps, UHQRs, Tone Poets whatnots. This is as good if not better than all those hyped records. The instruments are all clear and live in their own space with air around them. Good soundstage, sweet tonality, accurate and full low end. Listen to the 3rd movement and be wowed by the dynamism. The strings are ravishing. Highly recommended. I hope DG goes through their catalogue and keeps this going for decades to come. I am serious.
