Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mortiz Moszkowski (1854-1925) is most known for his scintillating piano compositions. He also composed an opera, a full-length ballet, three orchestra suites, a symphony, songs, concertos and chamber music - almost all of which remain neglected or forgotten. The San Francisco Ballet Orchestra is internationally recognized as one of the foremost ballet orchestra in the world. Over the years, the orchestra has accompanied such prestigious ballet comapnies as American Ballet Theatre, The Royal Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet and many others.

 Execrable sound July 16, 2018 By L. Ackerman (Washington, United States) See All My Reviews "I do not understand why this item is till being sold. The sound is the most execrable I have heard from any recording made in the last decade if not more. If you don't believe me, I'll be glad to send you a sample track so you can confirm. In fact, I just bought the recent John Williams at the Movies CD and the sound is cut so low I have to raise the volume at least 60%, and still it's not ideal to me. I am not buying from RR anymore. Full price for garbage sound coming from an audiophile label?!?! It's a disgrace and we deserve compensation for this annoyance." Report Abuse
