Presto Editor's Choice, April 2022

"Listen to the savoury brilliance of Lecce's Concerto in G major (and its magnificent central Largo, so archaic in spirit), the ironic skullduggery of the E flat major arbitrarily attributed to Paisiello, or Hummel's mischevious dimension (how can one resist his Andante with variations?)."  -- Diapason (5 Stars review)
