Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
Recording information: Orchestra Hall, Minneapolis Minnesota (01/18/1996-01/20/1996).

"This is the second two-channel SACD release from Reference Recordings, captured originally on analog tape masters using Prof. Keith Johnson’s custom focused-gap recorder, in January of 1996 in Minneapolis’ Orchestra Hall. The program is a good one, with eight examples of the fusion of opera and dance, which might also be regarded as similar to the several “opera without singing” albums that have been released over the years. While there are some big hits such as Salome’s Dance, and Samson and Delilah’s Bacchanale which closes out the disc, many
Read more of the selections are just as exotic and less well known...these compilation discs are superb hi-res demo material and would be especially of interest to those SACD fans whose systems are strictly two-channel."
