Modern instruments, if a touch bland after recent period-instrument revelations, suit these mature, full-blown wind symphonies. Some tuning, of oboes especially, lends a hard edge, but the performance captures admirably rhythmic wit of minuets and spontaneous good humour of fast finales. George Pratt
