Review By Stephanie von Bucha,Naxos,April 2005

Bruno Weil is still music director of the Carmel Bach Festival, but his recording activity has slowed down since those first heady years when he appeared to be performing a complete Haydn cycle with a couple of period bands, including Tafelmusik.

Weil is not an early music guy, however, he is simply a conductor and one of the best, most lively and most sensitive around. This version of the "Pastorale" has to be considered as gemutlich and grazioso as any on disc. � yet it is not precious or twee. The gut strings and narrow bore brass (plus those brutal tympani) of Tafelmusik make this performance as gritty and realistic (that storm!) as it should be, but the overall feeling is one of grace, charm and heartfelt love of nature.
