 bad, but my error August 5, 2014 By Bernard  Gordon (Newmarket, NH) See All My Reviews "Pretty awful stuff. I'm very familiar with the PRESIDENT'S OWN (I frequently attend their concerts at Sousa Hall in Washington, but this recording was very disappointing. Not really reflective of Gould's creativity. I was misled by the title of the recording." Report Abuse
