Saint-Saens: Symphony No. 3, Debussy: La Mer - Munch        (4 of 13 found this review helpful)
  Review by fotodan September 18, 2004

Be very careful when you play the *2-track SACD version* of "Escales". There is a pronounced rumble that pulsates so strongly at times that I thought I'd better stop the disc before I blew a subwoofer cone. And the sound of the orchestra is very diffuse and cloudy.

  Review by JW September 17, 2004

Brel must certainly be an acquired taste. It's ironic that it took a Belgian to represent something that for many is uniguely representative of France's cultural identity.
