Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

"...Enjoyable as this is, there's more to these pieces than mere charm. The Beethoven performance has exactly the same virtues as the Haydn, though the scherzo sounds particularly mild-mannered. In multichannel format, the engineers capture plenty of room ambiance with no loss of clarity or excessive rear-channel emphasis."
