Just got around to listening to this one.
Excellent sonics & spreading the instruments around you. The liner notes say the intent of instrument and mic positioning was to optimize the 5.1 soundfield.

For classical music fans, a must buy.

Agreed - this is easily one of the best recorded, direct to DSD sessions period. A must buy for Classical fans as you say.

Mic positioning, player positioning, choice of venue, gear, producer, everything optimized to try to create the truest of true SACDs. The liner notes go in to the care of production quite extensively, including diagrams.
I think the care and attention to detail shows. This recording is lovely. I'm no aficionado of recordings of the original composers (a variety of greats), though I own quite a few and recognize a piece here and there. So, I won't speak to performance, except that it sounds on point, to me. Is there some version, of a certain piece, out there that you'd prefer for feel, tempo, etc.? Maybe. But for what it is, this disc is gorgeous.

I would be very curious to hear how this stacks up against the famour Power E. Biggs Bach recording. Anybody have both?

In lieu of that, I'm going with a 10.
