Dreadful packaging December 5, 2014
By William Fielding (Nassau, Bahamas) See All My Reviews
"I bought this as part of the box set of all the Mahler symphonies. I enjoyed the performance to the extent that given that I do not really like this symphony, this recording made me changed my mind! The recording quality is very good indeed. However, the tight coarse cardboard packaging which ensures that it is next to impossible to get the CDs in and out without either tearing the cardboard or running the risk of scratching the CDs is dreadful. The packaging is a real disappointment, and makes the playing of the CDs such a struggle, I rather doubt how often I will submit to trauma of getting the CD from the box to the player. Pity."
