Complete but still empty
on 25 October 2010
I have my CINEPHILE CD 008 edition, which is far enough, it contains all the great music you need to hear, and above all, conducted by the composer.
This new recording, the only value it has its more music. But why to spend more $ in something thats more of the same. The Cinephile edition costed me $10.
There is no price for the composers own vision of a work. You cannot beat the emotion he gave to the recording with better sound or hiss reduction. Its the same when I listen those old Furtwängler recordings!! Who cares if the sound is not dolby 7.1!! Damn how good he works with the orchestra!!
In resume, just to listen some more tracks, and music that does not belong to Lawrence of Arabia (which totally takes out the mood of the score) you buy this cd, if not, stay with the good old Silva and Cinephile editions (I prefer the 2nd one).
