A Real Treat
I don't listen to a lot of classical music (mostly electronic/dance), but I am a lover of the piano in music. This concert is simply fantastic and is outside of my normal purchase range. The first CD is a little weak, but Ludovico only ramps up more and more so that the one song you can't buy individually, Eros, ends with 3 minutes of applause (yes, it is that good).
As I hinted at however, do know that going into it, this is a life concert, so you get all of the unrefined beauty of it being played live. You have the funny/misplaced applause between songs 1 and 2, you have Ludovico's speech to the audience after song 2, and even the strange multiple endings in one of the tracks on the 2nd CD. All in all however, this should not detract from your purchase of the whole CD. This really is beautiful music, I've even made one of the songs my phone's ringtone!
