 Awful! May 12, 2012 By David G. (newport beach, CA) See All My Reviews "First bad recording I've ever received from Arkiv. Aside from one very brief chorale passage -- it was gobbledegook from the get go. The "bubbles" were hugely distracting and only served to mix up any semblance of musicality to the piece. Just awful. I threw it out.
Sorry!"
