By the way, did you know you can post reviews of CDs on Amazon now?
I've already submitted a couple of GG reviews.

I think it's great that they listed the Grieg/Bizet/Sibelius disk. I
recently listened to the Sibelius side again and appreciated it --
"austere" or not. I know not everybody agrees with the recording
techniques used in them, and I'm sure the experiments don't always
works. But there is an almost otherworldly quality to some of them.
OK, it could be because of the composer and because of the musician.
