This isn't one of Tafelmusik's more successful recordings. The problem isn't that they use the wind and strings version of the Fireworks music, but rather that the performance simply fails to realize the grandeur and vigor that this work, above all, expresses to perfection. The timpani and brass, so critical to the success of the work, here sound relatively timid indeed, and with so many blazing performances of this music around, there's no room for second best. --David Hurwitz

This is clear, clean, crisp playing, that is lively, joyful, and, dare I say it, perfect in every way! The recording quality is superb as well. I have purchased many recordings with Jeanne Lamon conducting her group Tafelmusik, and I am starting to think that Lamon can do no wrong when it comes to conducting. Just do a search for her here on Amazon and read the reviews of her performances, and you will see that I am far from being alone in absolutely loving her work. You can also read professional reviews and find that it isn't just amateurs like me (who happens to own a couple of thousand CDs) who love her performances.

I am *tempted* to guarantee that you will love this, but obviously I cannot do that really. But it is utterly fantastic!

If you don't want a booklet, you can buy this in a set:
