Notes and Editorial Reviews

Performance: 5 (out of 5) / Sound: 4 (out of 5)
The Italian conductor Guido Cantelli was a reputed perfectionist who would spend hours working to get the detail of a page, even a bar, right. When he recorded Nuages and Fetes (less than 13 minutes of music), it took all of three days and 20 takes.
