 equilization? June 21, 2017 By John Arrayet (Montreal North, QC) See All My Reviews "Found the highs much too aggressive with a Nakamichi OMS4 CD and T 4A amplifier. Switching to the more "Civilized" QED 240 SA amplifier, the sound was much smoother but did not sound like a fresh recording. An analog recording in a good sound hall should be the barometer. In this case, maybe the strings should not have been so forward, but as chamber music should be au naturel, the problem is probably multifaceted. proper miking in a good hall or chamber should be sufficient. This almost sounds like a cd of a previous recording. Disappointment with the technical aspects precluded me listening to the musicians' virtuosity or even the melody. The works are worth recording properly." Report Abuse
 Music to confuse would be musical experts! December 7, 2015 By Gretel V. (Reston, VA) See All My Reviews "These concerti are real treasures and it is a shame they are not widely known. We had fun playing them for a professor of music and his knowledgeable family and looks of puzzlement came on their faces. They could not identify either the composer or the performer. Of course they knew it was not Mozart! The professor carefully studied the liner notes so may have plans to confuses his students as well!" Report Abuse
