A vocal and musical display with Grand Harmonie

"The orchestra was tight and energetic, with Grand Harmonie’s period winds — wooden flutes, valveless brass, tangy reeds — providing especially brisk colors. (Where modern horns might smooth out harmonies, the four natural horns injected ear-opening fizz and funk.) Directing from the fortepiano, conductor Edward Elwyn Jones garnished the overall brisk pace with enough lilt to keep the phrases airborne." (Mozart, Il re pastore)
