Great novel, some mispronunciations in the reading

It’s a great novel and many of the chapters were read very well. Others, however, included mispronunciations of some musical terms or were read by non-native English speakers whose speech sometimes had a distracting accent. In a perfect world, this podcast would have included musical excerpts of the works mentioned in the novel.
