5 - Classical Lost & Found (CLOFO) - Critic Review - 9/13/2016
"The sonic image projected is wide, deep and reverberant with the soloists and many instrumental groups well captured, highlighted and balanced against the NSO. The instrumental timbre is characterized by bright, tinkly highs, a somewhat condensed midrange, and low bass with maybe a hint of hangover after Michael's more massively scored moments. This CD should appeal to those liking a rich cavernous sound. " - Bob McQuiston
