 Two Fabulous Music Treats! September 1, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "Please let me make this review as brief as possible and still get my points across. The two musical treats featured here have both long been favorites of mine, and when I realized the opportunity to pick up both pieces on one bargain-priced disc, I leaped at it! Having the Naxos name behind them, I was certain that I would receive quality interpretations and outstanding sound renditions, and I was not disappointed on either count. Pick up this absurdly low-priced bargain while it is still possible to do so. If you enjoy this genre of classical music, you will be glad that you did." Report Abuse
