This disc will ONLY work on a Super Audio Disc Player!

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.

There are already a number of "definitive" versions of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde available. However, Pierre Boulez brings to this version stark contrasts of color and atmosphere that easily rival the others. Mahler was a very personal composer and he gradually became preoccupied with the expansive philosophical questions about life and death. Boulez accentuates these thoughts, sometimes delicately, at other times with vibrant force. The orchestral color is perfectly balanced at all times, especially in its accompanying role to the fine Wagnerian singers, Violetta Urmana and Michael Schrade.
