good stuff


This is a fairly good import of the erotica single. It features a couple good remixes but I recommend the other Erotica maxi-single listed instead.

A lovely, nonessential CD


The performance here is lovely, and the sound recording is very, very good. Weisberg and the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble really do bring these recordings to life.
Furthermore, La Creation du Monde is a great piece. It manages to combine early jazz with Classical in a remarkably logical mixture. The result is a fun, at times giddy piece of music...which also has truly breathtaking moments of solemn beauty.
However, this piece accounts for 15 minutes. The rest of this (rather short) CD is a suite from The Threepenny Opera. While the performance itself is fine, I don't see why one would be particularly driven to listen to a suite from the work. The opera itself is fine, but without the singers, the music runs a bit bland at times. Thus, saying this is probably the best recording of the Threepenny suite is sort of like saying a certain building is the tallest building in Omaha. It may be true, but does it really matter?
However, this is still a fun CD, that contains some nice quirky music. Overall, however, you can pass it up without many regrets.
