Magic Flute really did sound fine, and some of the individual instruments
are excellent, but the woodwinds are weak. It seemed to me that the
clarinet was the weakest of all, sounding very synthesized. Bassoon was
better, but still a little fake. The percussion instruments were scarily
accurate, though!
