5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All aspects excellent.

A few phrases in 'libera me' exaggerated by Leontyne Price (her performance with Reiner was more restrained) but otherwise superb.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blurry sound, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although claimed to be a great advance in sound technology, I found it unnatural and intrusive. Performances are fine.

Also loud clicks at various points.

A bad buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag - worth buying for oboe concerto, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mixed views - oboe concerto well performed and enjoyable.

Horn concerto taken at too slow and uneven a tempo.

Faults on the disk - loud clicks and skipping a few notes
