My own experience is as above (vinyl BTW).
" They also feature those piquant tones of the old style of French wind and brass playing which was shortly to disappear." Unless, of course, you hear the HIP version of Daphnis from Roth & Les Siecles :-)
I'll definitely download everything else, like the Couperin, Alborada, and especially Mother Goose. I sampled the final, Fairy Garden and the strings sound gorgeous.
My set is the Testament reissue. I've not noticed the distortion and dynamic limiting reported by Kuma but is is a number of years since I listened to the set so I will try to find time in the next couple of days to play it .
I have seen the Cluytens/Erato issue in the new releases list on Qobuz so I will try that too. I'm not yet a subscriber to Qobuz Sublime+ so 16/44.1 for me ( or more precisely 17/44.1 :-)) for the time being.
