Donizetti: L'elisir d'amore - Bonynge      (4 of 4 found this review helpful)
  January 7, 2015

In most respects I agree with Polly Nomial’s review. I will not repeat the arguments, but in summary for me this opera recording is the most charming incarnation of this masterpiece full of wonderful heartbreaking music, and full of humor and wisdom.

Mozart: Wind Concertos - Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra          (3 of 4 found this review helpful)
  December 25, 2005

Vivid interpretations of these lovely concertos, also with enough sentiment and warmth. Futhermore I have no severe complaints regarding the sound quality in stereo, maybe the soundstage a bit compact, but full bodied instruments with very natural timbre. IMO highly recommended!- My wishes for the ... more
