REVIEW:

This is arguably the best of the budget-price versions on disc. All the soloists play with accuracy and sensitivity, violinist Jose-Luis Garcia earning an honourable mention for the fleet-fingered dispatch in Concerto No.4. There are many good things in this set, not least the expressively played slow movements.
