Vivaldi: Four Seasons etc. - Fone Ensemble/Fornaciari          (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  May 22, 2004

This SACD edition is far and away the best, and seems to have the best sound of the ... more

  May 9, 2004

A new wonderful disc from Boston Baroque and Telarc. This is another 5 star recording. Bach's Orchestral Suites are well established in the recording library. This set should take its place near the top of the best. The pieces are arranged in order of composition, rather than common number, so the ... more
