Notes & Reviews:

Who would have thought a classical album could contain the beloved music of both Frank Zappa and Beethoven on the same release. Containing such pieces such as Toccata & Fugue in D minor by J.S. Bach, Largo, from Sonata in B-minor, op.58 by Frederic Chopin and Pavanne Our Un Infant Defunte by Maurice Ravel, Opus3 has done it again. With the assistance of talented Opus3 artists such as Marttias Wager, The Stockholm Guitar Quartet, The Omnibus Wind Ensemble and the Global Percussion Network this is a different collection with musical variety normally not found on these types of albums. Available on the Sony's SACD-Hybrid audiophile format, the sound is both crisp and clear.
