3.0 out of 5 stars Best without headset, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meyerbeer: Robert le Diable (Audio CD)
I listened to "Robert" a couple of times with my headset on and had to disagree with one of the previous reviewers.
I found it extremely and intrusively noisy on the part of the audience and the conductor is making his presence quite clear with a lot of heavy breathing which is very disturbing and distracting to my ears....However when I listened without headset, i found the sound and balnce quite good and did not notice the above very much. The performance is very spirited and energetic, but I need to listen a few more times as I am not sure how engaging the music is per se.

I have now had a chance to listen some more to "Robert"....my opinion still stands: there seems to be a society of Meyerbeer friends out there .Although my daughter shares genes with him, I am not sure if I am such a fan of his music although his opera L'etoile du Nord" is quite enticing. ( have a listen on the Marco Polo cd of this opera, also a live recording but without much stage noise. Again I repeat: "Robert"is quite enjoyable but without head phones applied. I will upgrade with one star.

Oh dear, Frits; now you've done it - you've spoken the truth that dare not speak its name and will share my fate of being negged by that group of devotees inexplicably devoted to this third-rate music.
