Polly Nomial wrote in his review:

"The sound is quite dry but sufficiently detailed for all the orchestrations many subtleties to register. Not a Pentatone or Channel Classics top flight recording by any means but a very enjoyable experience from every perspective."

I agree with this. The cymbal is recorded too prominently and apart from this up until the last minute or so of Pictures at an Exhibition the recording is very satisfactory and enables one to hear closely into the orchestra. But for the last minute or so of Pictures at an Exhibition I wish that Telarc or a similar recording firm had done the recording as the cymbal hides all of what is going on in the rest of the percussion and robs this otherwise good SACD of its final punch.
