 Not of Blu Ray Quality April 2, 2017 By C. Riter (Portland, OR) See All My Reviews "I highly anticipated the arrival of this Blu-Ray performance of one of my favorite pianist with the ASMF. But in hearing and watching, the disc did not deliver. It's not to say that the performance was sub par, but I was expecting superior audio and video quality. On both accounts the disc underperformed. It seems strange that a performer like Murray Perahia does not have many Blu-ray offerings available. This is the only disc that Arkiv offers from Mr. Perahia. I wish it had been better. 2 stars only" Report Abuse
