 Great Haydn performances! May 27, 2014 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "This disk with Symphonies 102 and 104 is a delightful way to enjoy these works. Nothing goes wrong in these lively, witty readings. Reasonable tempos, good bslsnce, and precision are there, played on modern istruments. The sound is excellent, too." Report Abuse
