New Salieri appreciationSeptember 28, 2019By Paul Brunson (Arvada, CO)See All My Reviews"This 2 CD set is very well recorded in SACD. Some of the Mozart pieces I recognized, but the Salieri pieces were new to me - I thoroughly enjoyed them both! I will now review the Arkiv SACD list and see if I can locate any other Salieri recordings."Report Abuse
