Great perfomances in edgy sound,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chopin: Complete Nocturnes (Audio CD)
The performances are exceptional, very straight and unfussy but not rushed ; I am disappointed with the sound, however, as there is a certain trebly edge to the piano which is not present on other Hyperion releases (eg Livia Rev plays Debussy). The Hyperion download of the Debussy sounds better on my hi-fi with my ipod connected than these 2 CDs do, so there must be something wrong with the pressing or the original recording of the Chopin. This is a real pity, as it detracts considerably from the beauty of the playing.
Has anyone else found the sound less than great, or have I just been unlucky and received a bad copy?
