Description: More Romantic music on period instruments from this Dutch orchestra with the predictible but subtle gains in using gut strings, period winds and forces of the size more usual for the period, in this case strings of 8-8-6-6-5. When the strings only outnumber the winds by 33-19, you will always be able to hear what the composer's intended you to hear from the latter. Anima Eterna; Jos van Immerseel.
