I recently watched Master & Commander for the first time and was just smitten by the classical pieces played by Jack & Stephen together. I wanted a copy of the soundtrack for my own, but I wasn't sure if I'd really hear the same thing I did in the movie. I listened to the available sample clips, but I don't know if that really told me anything. For example, would I hear that piece in the movie where they hold their instrument like guitars and strum while the other plays just the same as what it sounded like in the movie? Or is the CD merely regular performances of those arrangements? I heard that some of the classical pieces on the CD are cut short, but I'm not sure what was meant by that either.
Basically I just don't want to purchase this CD if it's only going to turn out to be a disappoinment, and I really appreciate anyone who can give me some insight on the CD.
