  • I wish the balance had been a bit better. Often the chordal accompaniment on the piano outweighs the melodic line in the mandolin. I’m surprised that the pianist wasn’t more sensitive to the possibility of drowning out the mandolin, but perhaps she thought the recording engineer would compensate. Still, he gave a beautiful rendition.
