 RCA Red Seal Special January 30, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "The cover on this CD is unusual for a classical disc, but it worked for me, focused my attention on something I would not have been seeking otherwise. I've heard these works countless times and it still seems fresh. At this price, take a chance!" Report Abuse
