Brilliant but ruined by audience!
on 8 December 2011
I agree with all the rave reviews on the quality of the music. But oh my, WHY must we suffer the VERY LOUD and unwanted audience applause? Jarrett's music is cool & contemplative, so it is particularly jarring to have every piece PUNCTUATED by the CLAPPING and CHEERING, and I can't believe the volume that has been mixed at. I don't object to audience reaction. I do object to the it being made such a feature of the recording.
If I had known about this in advance, I would not have bought the discs.
