A good example of how NOT to play this piece complete with really sloppy playing totally out of character for the NBC.

RY cleanest best balanced sound with slight reverb which doesn't actually seem to do any damage and may actually of helped.

Most Memories are massivly reverb, this one is not. Not bad sound.

Palladio sort of muddy.

M&A thin.
