 Clean clear and crisp May 2, 2013 By J S E T. (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "Clean, clear, and crisp in sound and performance. Nothing pedantic, just well considered performances. The early symphonies sound the most "early music" while the latter ones take on much fuller textures. Excellent all around." Report Abuse
