Classical Pianist Smith ,

Excellent buy!

The sound quality for this is great, and the music's brilliance is only surpassed by that of the pianist. Her touch is soft and very expressive where appropriate (i.e. opening piano score for the Egyptian), and her tone is always crisp. The runs are done excellently and you can definitely tell, she has very quick and nimble fingers. This album rocketed Saint-Saens past Liszt on my list (pun intended); the originality, especially in Nos. 2 and 5, is incredible. Any artist suggestions for Carnival of Animals?

The only excellant works!!

It has perfect balance between piano & orchestra, each concertos are the most brilliant works!!

It is good opportunity to get all five piano concertos of Saens without any regret!
You must get it if you are classical fan.

Issues with recording

Just FYI, the recording sounds broken on everything I play it on, regardless of speaker quality or volume when the music reaches crescendos to anything over mp. I'm asking for my money back. Only gave two stars as it's clear the musicianship is top notch when you overlook the static.
