The best recording of The Seasons can be found in the BIMA, courtesy of Sir Charles Groves and the BBC CO (1989). Well worth a listen! Andrew Penny on Marco Polo muffs "Summer" by taking it much too fast, hence his movement timings are 10:46, 6:52, 10:00 and 11:06.

German knew what he was doing and Groves (at 7:33) gets it just right.
