As you'd expect from such fine artists, the performances are very good, if not quite as distinguished as some earlier recordings. They certainly rate at least four stars. However, I can't bear to listen to them due to the sound of the disc. And no, the problem is not the sound of period instruments - I have other period instrument SACDs and none are as shrill as this.
The recording was made in the late 90's and then-released as a redbook cd. This SACD release has actually exacerbated the slightly annoying edgy brightness of the original disc. I'm not sure how, - whether its the extra definition that may have been provided by DSD remastering, or the effect of artificially generating a surround field, - but whatever the cause the result is a shrill, wiry and unpleasant sound that is very aggravating.
A single star for sound, as a result of which I couldn't possible recommend this to anyone, despite the fine performances buried (massacred?) within.

PROS: period instruments, fast, cheerful, not saddening, excellent sound quality.

CONS: poor instrumental interactions, weak conducting, not thoughtful performance, it losses your attention particularly on slow movements.
