I mostly agree with you on this one, amigo.
I do like Nicolai's trumpet themes, though.
Berger seems unsure how to play the lead role, for some reason. Usually, he does a fine job with the roles he is given; but, here, not so much. Most likely he wasn't getting good direction from Bergonzelli.
EL CISCO isn't the worst SW I have seen, but it isn't exactly good, either.
