I smell how artificial and distorted this music is. It's like behind a thick round glass, always kind of out of focus, and never real. All the dramas are just a comedy, fights between plastic figures: and snow, snow everywhere.
Pešek's reading is precise, and maybe a little bit distant, keeping it–despite the orchestration–on the colder side.
