 Romeo and Juliet in Oslo May 16, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I have generally been pleased with recordings by Jansons that I have previously obtained and this one is no exception. Jansons here gives us a beautiful, refined, performance with a measured and deliberate pace. Jansons makes this sound very natural where in other hands it might seem too slow. The recording has a very wide dynamic range such that I had the gain boosted: however, the peaks were then on the loud side and verging on being brittle. Overall the audio is quite good. At this discs' low price it is an easy recommendation." Report Abuse
