Gosh, do I dare cast a dissenting vote?
I wasn't really enamored of the recordings, as the bass and high treble seem quite muffled to me; I also hear overload, as if the microphones need to back off a bit.
I really don't get a sense of the signature Mason & Hamlin sound here. The midrange seems to honk.
I'm wondering if my stereo could be really that far off?
The artist's website went into detail about how critical it is to tune the piano before recording, yet I could discern many unisons that were out.
I thought there was way too much pedal - in the Chopin particularly. The Brahms came off a bit better, but I do like the pedal to clear completely whenever there are chord changes.
I know I'm being extraordinarily picky. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have posted at all, as it's been a grueling long day with very little sleep.
I will however give kudos to anyone who takes the time, care, and effort to put up a website of their own recordings. It is a lot more than I will probably ever do!
