Elisabeth Leonskaja (piano). It is grand and glorious piano sound on the stereo SACD layer. I can only afford one pair of Quads and the amplifiers to run them, so I can tell you nothing about the surround sound layer, other than that this is one of those 2+2+2 layouts, not the . that most of us have come to regard as the standard. The recording location is not one with which I am familiar, but my guess is that it is a fairly small hall, and that the microphones were about 4 to 5 meters away from the piano. I base that more on the ratio of mechanical noise to music, and the volume of Elisabeth Leonskaja's breathing.

Elisabeth Leonskaja reveals the magic of Franz Schubert, the great Austrian musical genius. Her unparalleled interpretive sensitivity would surely have found a fan in Schubert, who would not suffer the virtuosic demonstration in which certain famous pianists indulge and who do not touch either the spirit or the heart as Leonskaja does.
