I don't have the soundfont you mentioned, but I played it using the FluidR3_GM.sf2 soundfont, via pmidi,  both using my soundblaster card, and also with qsynth (fluidsynth). 

Both of the playbacks sounded good to me.  However, I am using a PPA version of libfluidsynth1 from David Henningson (one of the developers), and I no longer have the version I got with Ubuntu 12.04, because it wouldn't play my more complex pieces either. 

I tried it with the soundblaster card because it never had the problem fluidsynth has had in the prior, and current, Ubuntu Linux release. 

I am wondering if you have run into the same thing I ran into with the Ubuntu 12.04 release version of fluidsynth, where it fills up the available polyphony, and begins dropping notes (or playing new notes for only a short time).  Once in that mode, it remains in that bad mode until you restart fluidsynth (qsynth). 

If it is that problem, it has been fixed in the just-released version of fluidsynth. 

If you could describe more precisely the way the sound wasn't good to listen to, I might be able to recognize if it is the same problem I encountered.

My name is Ryan, and I am a MIDI listener. I have no experience in creating MIDI software nor composing MIDI music. I like MIDI because of its small size so I can distribute my own game without bloating my distribution file size. I listen MIDI using VLC Media Player which use fluidsynth backend as MIDI Playback. In VLC, I set fluidsynth to load Roland GS SoundSet.sf2 (similar to Microsoft GS Wavetable) but I found it doesn't play correctly. The sound which come from my speaker wasn't good to listen. When I tried another Media Player such as Winamp, it play the MIDI File correctly without problem. I attach the MIDI Files because I hope Fluidsynth developer can find out the problem.

Thanks for your attention. Sorry for my English.
