Yup.

And I find that, even in the 1994 version, Tunick's awesomely big voicing of the brass and saxes on the "and if I wanted too much / was it such a mistake at the time" passage (in the overture) is a huge huge thrill. But no one hears that marvelous writing in this version.

(One detail in that line - on the 2nd syllable of what would be the word "mistake," Tunick takes a dissonance Sondheim only briefly hints at in the piano part for the sung version of "Good Thing Going," and makes it much more prominent - creating this aching altered jazz chord in the brass/saxes. Gives me wonderful chills every time I hear it.)
