Poor ensemble, under-rehearsed
on 4 February 2013
While I'm sure it's wonderful being at the this festival 'live' - where to watch and listen to these musicians play will work very well indeed. However, the problem comes with repeated listening to many of these performances which simply do not stand up. many places sound under-rehearsed (unsurprising), and there is some sloppy ensemble at times(something you will not really notice or be bothered by live) and most importantly, as 'interpretations' - these simply do not compare to the finest out there..
I could not recommend these as a general purchase - if you specifically want these works then look elsewhere - if you are a fan, then fair enough..
