Generally save the Hody's for nearer the big day. This disc is my preferred entry into the seasonal repertoire.

I've been listening to this on Qobuz for the past hour or so (and last night). Extremely good I think. SQ is excellent as is the music. Very open, clear and airy, allowing the "space" of the venue to shine through.

Highly recommended if you like Classical music.
