Is he serious? As far as I can see, Mr France has been reviewing CDs on this site for years and years, and here he is, reviewing a recording of the recorder's most FAMOUS (multi-decorated, multi-recorded) player - who he's never heard of??
I'm all for amateur critics, but when I read things like that, I surely can't be the only one who's unsettled. Couldn't he have looked her up and listened to a few other recordings before jumping in at the deep (shallow) end? But then he also says, in his opening list of confessions and advice (who's going to take notice now?!), that he doesn't even like the recorder all that much!
At the very least, I would've thought the site's editor would suggest judicious rephrasing.
It almost makes me wish I had a subscription to threaten to cancel!
