Music Reviews

Over the past few years, I have of necessity given up equipment reviewing (confluence of interest!) and taken up music reviewing instead. I bring to this writing more enthusiasm than musical knowledge and so offer it up mainly as news about current offerings in the mainly classical music recording world.
