Indeed it depends very well on the intent.  It's easy to compare with
the originals as they are found easily on youtube.  Since the intent is
at play and since one of the goal could have been to make it sound
like it does (if that makes sense) one could perhaps venture
nevertheless that the blending of sounds is on the scarce side.  That
is, if compared with a human playing the same, on a real piano.  Perhaps
like not using the sustain pedal much.  Sounds seems to be clear-cut. Is
this kind of criticism valid ?  I don't know.
