CD Reviews

Terrible
07/30/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Although this is one of the finest compositions of concert band literature, this recording is utterly horrible. Not only is the quality incredibly poor (I found the background coughing annoying), the manner in which this piece is played lacks fundamental preparation and detracts from the beauty of this piece. I recommend the Tokyo-Kosei Symphony recording of this piece."
Hindemith: A brilliant composer leading a mediocre orchestra
09/18/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hindemith, a brilliant musical master mind is unjustly represented in this CD. The quality of the orchestra is subpar, this can be heard by the several missed notes, poor intonation and unbalanced technique. The musical phrasing however is superb, thanks to Hindemith's genious of conducting."
Mediocre
09/19/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hindemith, a master mind of composition, is unjustly represented in this recording. This is a recording that was never meant to be bought not only because of the lack of proper editing technology, but because of the poor playing of the orchestra. Hindemith does however manage to make some musical ideas emerge from what was then a newly formed orchestra. The Varations for Piano however, is a bit higher in quality and worth buying."
