Toccata: Mendelssohn, Reger, Rheinberger - Beekman          (4 of 5 found this review helpful)
  May 9, 2006

As always with Pentatone, the sound is astounding: you feel seated in the middle of the church, and listening in MC with 4 columns and a central, I could hardly hear any problem with the bass.

Buying a third copy - as an ultimate attempt to resolve ... more

The series is - as the name suggests - about science and what the various progresses in ... more
