Very focused
09/04/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have all the CDs of this series and this is one of the best. As the title suggests, night music, it is very focused, even if it uses a very restricted range of elements.As you can hear in the sound selections, they have a refined sense of pitch in a microtonal domain.Given the amount of precision, these are some professional players here!"
