 Essential Four August 10, 2016 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "If a listener is sufficiently interested to buy a recording of Berwald's symphonies, it only makes sense to get all four. This set is fairly priced and nicely produced. Berwald's name should be much more recognized than it is. One day American audiences may hear these works, but only if more people hear recordings and communicate with their local orchestras." Report Abuse
