 Crazy Discs October 10, 2013 By Herbert Shapiro (Tarpon Springs, FL) See All My Reviews "The recordings are fine. The performances are as good as any ever recorded. However, the actual discs themselves are mislabeled. Gian Carlo Menotti becomes Gian Franco Menotti, and there is no indication as to which of the three discs contain which piece." Report Abuse
