This is beautiful music, wonderfully played

This is beautiful music, wonderfully played. Unfortunately the recording quality on the CD lets it down, being what I can only really describe as fuzzy in places. What a shame. It's more noticeable on some high-end audio equipment than others, but detracts from the purity of the music none the less. Once you've noticed it, it's hard to forget it's there. I contacted ECM who swapped my disc for one in their library, but when told the problem persisted, they were unable to acknowledge or resolve it, so please be aware that if you have sensitive ears, you may have difficulties listening to this disc/recording. It's also a very quiet recording, which ECM did acknowledge and claimed was intentional without offering any explanation. It just means you have to play it at a higher volume than your other CDs to appreciate it which can cause a bit of a shock if you don't adjust the volume before playing something else.
