The music is beautiful, let that be a fact, and its lovely finally hearing it, but as I mentioned previously when reviewing CD 1, the recording sounds as if it was made shortly after WW II. This incredibly stupid engineer butchered the studio recording. These days you can with very simple equipment, get very good sound results, without any deep understanding, but only good ears, and a penchant for understanding the software. Clearly in both cases this guy failed, and that makes me quite angry. Probably there was never a post production, or lets listen after one or two takes to the results. What a shame. We are in need of better recordings. I doubt that I will ever play them again. Not recommended.
