What a shame, they sound like amateurs! No intonation, no sound, no natural construction... Poor guys, they play as they can... Miserable! A real shame!

A bit harsh, realmusiclover. A good performance - though I'm not convinced by Manze's romanticised solos, which are not carried through Podger.

I agree, it is harsh, but this thing happened at the BBC Poms not in my back yard!
