Although i cannot confess to being an expert on Classical music i do enjoy listening to it..alot.My Hifi set-up could not be described as cheap and when i listen to something i want to listen to quality. In this 5 CD set i believe the quality i search for in music is there. The sound is extremely accurate and tight,both in the orchestral and the recording quality. The reproduction is truely moving and i can highly reccomend this to anyone who is looking for above average sound. Money well spent.
