Notes and Editorial Reviews

"An entirely winning triptych of named Haydn symphonies, spanning a highly creative period...Alert and vivacious playing from all concerned; admirable pacing and first-class sound ensure a welcome for a disc that would be just as recommendable it it cost far more."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
