Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.138) - "...Naxos continues to ply its way through the 18th century symphony repertoire with this, their fourth release, and the best in the series thus far....The musicians of Nicholas Ward's Northern Chamber Orchestra, based in Manchester, England, are strong advocates for this literature. These are crisp and clean readings with excellent choices of tempo, balance, and perspective."
