Notes and Editorial Reviews

For those who wish not only to acquire a durable and unmannered, yet bracing and continuously interesting version of the Four Seasons, but also to set themselves up to explore the entire op. 8, Naxos’s recording could hardly be bettered. I recommend the set to specialists and, in fact, to everybody, despite the hordes of robust alternatives.
