    The orchestra for this recording is just fine but the soloist is quite terrible. His tone is very thin, intonation is sketchy, phrasing is 'different'. But if you need to practice for a performance, this is a good buy. Fairly easy to follow. I would strongly suggest, however, that you...

    get another recording by a professional artist to go along with it.
