Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In vivid, full-ranging recordings made by German Radio, Müller-Brühl conducts lively performances with his excellent chamber orchestra of three symphonies frrom around 1774. Müller-Brühl uses modern instruments, yet reflects period practice in asking for ery limited vibrato and light articulation from the strings."
