I have been listening to this one for a few weeks now and I must say I am both impressed and very disappointed. A fair amount of my disappointment is surely to be taken on my expectations being very high. As I grew up to theese recordings.
I'll take some time to write a detailed review, below is my first impression to that release.

The amount of music here is very high, around 90 mins, because the previous incarnations would not include the Romeo and Juliet. Despite a volume level being way lower than average, the sound is very clear and detailed. Yet something is missing there, the rendition is lacking impact and weight. For instance I remembered the introduction for Sleeping Beauty to have very wider dynamics. Some very noticeable artifacts can be heard.

In overall I feel left with the impression of a very fine work which was finished in a hurry.
