Really enjoyable double SACD. Has joined my collection of several versions of the Four Seasons (all period ensembles, of course, no Nigel Kennedy, here). Tempi are, of course, very much a matter of taste; some like them faster and some like them slower. A few of the newer releases are a bit too fast for my taste, seeming to leave the beauty of the music behind in their attempts to be faster than all the others. This is NOT the case with this version; it is relaxed and full of expression, and the lovely sound of the multi-channel recording complements this nicely - Highly recommended, especially at this price.
