No good sound, it is not fare for Miss Yuja Wang
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2019
Playback in this recording is NOT first class and the sound quality leaves much to be desired. Obviously taken into account that it is a live recording, at least the Second Concert (or live recordings with correction editions), the piano sounds very far, to this we must add that it is DDD, therefore It is not the best recording mode for classical music that makes it has almost no definition in the bass registers in the lower two octaves of the piano. In the Variations on a Paganini theme, the edition is terrible and there are pauses where the sound is lost that has nothing to do with the pauses of the variations. I played many times thinking that it was a defect due to dust or something else, but not, always at the same moment.
This is DG !!! They are world class artists !!! I don't understand this from DG. I think you can do better than this in terms of production quality. There is another review and I agree with what you asked. Did anyone really listen to the finished product before the CDs were released? ..... I have returned, a shame
