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.
Manuel de Falla (1876-1946): The Three Cornered Hat, Interlude & Spanish Dance from "La vida breve", Teresa Berganza (mezzo soprano), L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Ernest Ansermet (conductor).This is a very famous historic performance of Manuel de Falla's The Three Cornered Hat with Ernest Ansermet conducting L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, a crown jewel of the DECCA catalog.
Ernest Ansermet (November 11, 1883-February 20, 1969), was a great conductor who left his mark on the history of classical music with his exquisite and colorful performances. As the conductor for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, he premiered many important compositions of the early 20th century. He is known for founding the Swiss Romande Orchestra in 1919 and, as its musical director, developing it into a global presence. In 1946, he entered an exclusive contract with the Decca label and made a vast amount of recordings covering French, Russian, 20th century, and German and Austrian music. Many of these recordings were highly evaluated in the LP age, complemented as they were by excellent recording technology.
