'Performed with commitment and style by instrumentalists well versed in Spohr's musical particulars under Howard Shelley's glint-in-the-eye direction … there is a charm and genuineness that is readily apparent and which is welcome. The recording is first class' (International Record Review)

'The performances are first rate, and the solo horn playing is glorious' (The Guardian)
