Just when you think the conductor and the orchestra can't drag the tempo down any further, you are surprised - yes it can be done - the music gets even more bogged down. How the orchestra can hold it's intonation is a miracle.
This is a text-book example of a lifeless, dull performance; of meaningless phrasing; of no particular POV. Just notes being played.
If I thought I could get my money back, I'd try - maybe I will try.
This is great music gone bad / played badly.
I had to force myself to listen to it.
WARNING this CD contains a harmful performance. Keep away from ears.
