Notes & Reviews:

These are really excellent performances, and one thing that really stands out is the orchestral sound, in ensemble and recording. This music really demands a lyrical touch and a lightness of playing for the most part, which is accomplished by the typically lean and concise sound of the orchestras performing here. The exceedingly crisp, airy sound is perfect for this music.
