SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes
the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further
enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed
for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency,
players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which
enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution
format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high
resolution format such as SACD.
Sir Georg Solti conducts the London Symphony Orchestra for this recording of
Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra next to his Dance Suite and The Miraculous
Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra derives its name from the approach taken in
treating instrument groups within the orchestra in a "concertante" or soloist
manner throughout the piece. This virtuoso treatment, for example, is notable in
the fugato section of the first movement where the brass are highlighted as well
as in the second movement where pairs of instruments appear consecutively
creating a brilliant passage.
Bartok composed his Dance Suite as the result of a commission from the city
fathers of Budapest to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the union of the two
towns Pest and Buda.
