A few days ago i gave my impressions on Cameron Carpenter's Revolutionary SACD recording, and i did not write it in the "Stunning recordings" thread for nothing; it IS a stunning one; and a few people here do own this CD.

How about giving your impressions, what you think about it?
this is a great quality recording that puts you right in the church where the recording was made; it's got the excellent Telarc sound.

Or maybe it is taboo here to talk about feelings brought about by listening to good music on excellent speakers?
Isn't music all about feelings!

The volume level i recommended is not out of the ordinary for Telarc recordings, all of those i own play well at Reference Level or a few dB above that.
this one is just right at +4 dB.

I don't have that one but I have at least one other Telarc recording.Richard Strause, Eine Alpensinfonie, Andre Previn & Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
It is indeed in the "Stunning" category.

The Pony Express finally brought my SACD yesterday; however, I haven't been able to get to it yet as I was setting up & testing my new M3 setup. Furthermore, we have a new princess white feline arriving today to add to our collection, ha!

I'll give it a go soonest with my tube-amp/AX2s/Velo system...

Since Telarc recordings have been brought up and Andrew discusses the Strauss Alpine Symphony disc I suggested a couple years ago, I'll specifically mention one more of the numerous excellent Telarcs. As I told Andrew some time ago when he marvelled that even his wife enjoyed his Brahms Hungarian Dances CD, it's highly likely that the similarly delightful Dvorak Slavonic Dances would also be enjoyed. They're available in excellent performances with great Telarc sound here at absurdly low prices from several sellers.

I listened to Cameron Carpenter 'Revolutionary' SACD on my Tube-Amp, AX2s & Velodyne 10" sub. Very impressive.

Not only is he an outstanding young organist who demonstrates great skill & artistry with this awesome instrument, the Telarc crew also did a great job in capturing it in all its glory (even though it is a virtual/digital organ). To tell you the truth, I can't tell the difference between a genuine pipe organ & this one. Many purists don't like it or him, but I sure do.

There are several passages the shook my couch with blasts of low end content. My vintage speakers were certainly put to the test today. Highly recommended.

I also received my other SACD as well - Spyro Gyra 'Good to Go-Go'. I listened only to the first track so far - quality, full sound with deep percussion. I think that I'm going to like this one as well...

JB:

That comes from 36 years in the Air Force of assessing pilots (officers) in my flight. While composing PERs (Personnel Evaluation Reports) annually was a herculean task & a complete PITA for a guy who would rather be flying, it allowed me to become somewhat competent at 'wordsmithing'...
