warning:pitch sensitive people avoid this one!
I bought this because of the Burlesque. In any collection it is available in album only. The Rosenkavalier,Salome,and Festival Prelude are all lovely.As for the Burlesque....Basically it is a duet between piano and timpani, with orchestral accompaniment. The first 4 measures of the Burlesque open with TIMPANI stating part of the theme.It is piano dynamics, and it was so grossly out of tune, that I was aghast!Happens again in measure nine,this time a little louder, was better. At loud dynamics, was ok,also. All I can think of is that the miking was so far away, that they sadly, picked up overtones of the drums from heads that were not very well in tune with itself.You may not notice a problem, but when I played it for my middle school percussion student, he heard the pitch problem right away.I feel bad for the timpanist, not taking these things in to account, and that he or she has to work with sound techs that did not think the timpani was important enough to RErecord,or record properly.This is a problem of the instrument, and your fundamental pitches must be as good at pianissimo as they are at fortissimo.A heavier mallet,which brings out the depth of pitch must also be taken into account as well as the drums'tuning with itself.Save yourself the aggravation and do not buy this one.
