I think I was too harsh! After listening to to it again, there really is some lovely playing here. True, she doesn't hammer out the fortissimos as intensely as Sviatoslav Richter, but in comparison, he almost seems to be banging the piano. While the sound is more distant than I prefer, it's not as bad as I first thought. I guess I just wasn't in the right mood or something! I don't seem to be able to edit my star ratings, so I'll give both performance and multi-channel sound four stars.
