BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 5 in C minor Op. 67; Symphony No. 6 in F Major “Pastorale” Op. 68 – Tacet Real Surround Sound DVD-Audio DVD D164, 73:14 [Distr. by Naxos] *****:
This is going to be a very short review, because the disc is identical to the previously-reviewed version of the same symphonies on a multichannel SACD. It’s nice that Tacet has released it both ways; there may be a number of collectors out there with DVD-Audio playback capability but not SACD. I didn’t do a direct comparison of the two formats in this case but in past cases I found little difference between the two. Go here to see John Nemaric’s review of the SACD version.
