"Save your money, the performances are mediocre at best. The string section sounds muddy and cannot keep time. The recording seems to be done by amateurs."
Supurb Recording but Mediocre Performance

"I disagree with Stephen W. on one point, the recording. The 5.1 24 bit/96 kHz recording on this DVD-Audio is disc is supurb and very life like. However, the orchestra is not up to the professional quality. It's too bad because Dr. Mark Waldrep's recording technique is true art in the high definition audio recording field. It's too bad he can't record or is unable to afford to record a professional orchestra. His recordings for AIXrecords.com are the best 5.1 high resolution recordings I've ever heard, on par or even better than Dr. Johnson's recordings for the Reference Recordings label. Unfortunatly, due to the orchestra's performance I can only give this 3 stars."
