The LIVING CONCERT SERIES embodies, in a very special way, the basic concept behind ACOUSENCE’s PHILOSOPHY-LABEL. These music recordings are planned to provide, aside from exceptional musical content and an audiophile sound quality, above all, emotionally intense performances. The spontaneity and naturalness of a live performance, combined with a highly refined recording technique, that is capable of transmitting the smallest of sound-nuances, so essential in portraying atmosphere and emotional content, provide a true »Concert« experience.
This is without a doubt, one of the best (top 25) recordings ever made.
I would place this wonderful recording without hesitation on the same sonically level like the Reiner’s millenium recording, although they are a little different.
Both are among the 3-4 best “Scheherazades” in this world.
If you have a very good equipment, you will have seriously problems, to believe, what you hear. Trust in me, it’s true !

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music. Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 1.0 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

- Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
