    David Mellor recommended Sviatoslav Richter in his Classic FM shows so I had great hopes for this. I was not disappointed, the playing is excellent and I agree with tarkus9.

    I am a little confused as to what the quad mix is doing. It doesn't sound like the ambience of the room it was recorded in, the rears sound closer mic'd than that. It's a solo piano so there's no movement of the tracks or instruments obviously. It does fill the room rather nicely, I'm just struggling with how it's been done. Possibly 4 mics quite close around the piano?

    Beautiful – the sound fills the room and the soul. Thank you, OD.
