  Review by uffemannen October 18, 2004

I second the opinion of the last reviewer - both regarding the music and the technical audio issues.

The four scherzi are oft-recorded works, and comparing these performances with other sets I have, by Rubinstein, ... more

Oh boy. What a record! 5.1 mixing from original studio recording has created outstanding results. This record uses quite wide mixing with piano on the lefthand side and drums on the right hand size. Nnenna's voice is reproduced very well and you can hear from the music that the singer and backing ... more
