This cd is offers a good overview of the earlier songs in the career of Fairuz. Sound quality is mostly more than adequate.

Excellent performance.

Stay close to your volume button because of the very dynamic recording.

This cd is interesting for both Sibelius lovers and music scholars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discover Elgar the symphonist, 16 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very rewarding recordings dating from the seventies. The performance is first rate. The winner is symphony number one. The two ouvertures are nice fill ups but dispensable. Anyhow, excellent value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent Beethoven cycle, 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Beethoven cycle is very rewarding. Performance, interpretation as well as recording are first class. The listener will discover new dimensions not noticed before.
