 Enjoyable April 14, 2013 By Daniel M. (Lee's Summit, MO) See All My Reviews "The French Horn has always been my favorite brass instrument due to the "sonic character" and "range". This entire CD is very enjoyable for me. As I have said in several other reviews; the brightness is not quite there. I am very sensitive to proper tonal balance (nothing exaggerated or diminished throughout the entire frequency spectrum). Brightness or presence is necessary for an accurate representation of an instrument's overtones (harmonics). (Turning up the treble control does help some but doesn't really solve the underlying problem). Having said all of this, I do recommend this recording!" Report Abuse
