if he has TIDAL.
I'll listen tonight. May already have as it's marked in my 'favorites'.
I especially like the opening primordial soup bit. The chorale climax has an ecstatic sweep much similar to "On the summit" from Strauss' Alpine Symphony.
The tymp and brass ending never really does it for me.
And probably never will. Subscription service, right? Out of curiosity, what does it cost, and what are the equipment requirements?
I run it using a laptop with their player software installed (OS-X or Win).
I run it out the USB port of my laptop to what I consider a top quality DAC(Audio-GD Master 11 DAC/Headphone Amp) for most listening but I also have it on my SONOS and on my main system via a Mac Mini and another Audio-GD Ladder DAC (Master-7).
Stop by sometime and compare your favorite CDs with what streaming sounds like. I live out at Ocean Beach in the Outer Sunset. There is not that much difference when using a decent computer and a really good DAC.
OK, maybe my CD player sucks, there is always that risk. ;-)
But streaming is so much a part of my musical discovery process that I also subscribe to QOBUZ which has an even larger obscure classical catalog, and sounds just as good if not better?
And I used to have Deezer Elite, another 16/44.1 streaming service as well as ClassicsOnlineHD before they closed it down.
No Cable TV and I get SONIC Gigabit Internet for just $40 a month so I'm $$ ahead of most folks.
