 Defect on Mp3 August 22, 2014 By William L. (Lake Charles, LA) See All My Reviews "This is a fairly good recording, but there is a defect on one of the tracks for the Mp3 download; I had to get a refund. The cadenzas seem a little forced and not quite appropriate for the concertos. As always Hogwood provides good direction." Report Abuse
