Fine performance disappointing sound quality.
on 30 July 2015
Having heard this disc played on "Classic FM" I was looking forward to owning my own copy as I was very impressed by the quality of playing and the interpretation. However I was disappointed when I played it on my own high quality system, something was wrong! After careful listening I realised that Classic FM use volume compression which seems to correct the problem with this disc. The piano is set too far in the background sounding at too great a distance and the superb chamber orchestra sound swells up to a disproportionate volume so that it no longer sounds chamber like but expands to a full symphony orchestra, not useful when the concentration is on the piano. A further fault is the treble roll off causing a lack of clarity and too heavy a drum. It is all a pity as the instrumentalists are excellent. Hence only three stars.
