Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is one of Harnoncourt's very best records. All three symphonies are notable for their spectacular horn parts...The playing is not only extremely vital and polished but even has an element of charm. The orchestra communicate their involvement throughout."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition] Review of Elatus 60033
