CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Outstanding: the wind quintet must be one of the most evocative instrumental combinations ever devised. The pieces on this CD are superb (Hindemith's ghostly-cheerful Kleine Kammermusik, Barber's gorgeous dreamy Summer Music, Janacek's brilliant Mladi), and both performance and sound quality are to my ears excellent. See also Scandinavian Wind Quintets, likewise on Naxos."
Delightful, Intelligent
Brian Siegel | 10/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All of these pieces
are pleasant as well as intelligent. The emotional range in nearly all the pieces runs from piquant curiosity, witty humor
& sunny daydreams to intelligent, well meaning (and funny) satire on the human condition. Difficult to sum up in words, but
DELIGHTFUL & INTELLIGENT are two words that come to mind. A FIVE STAR cd in both quality and value."
A Classic Recording

"It is impossible to pretend any objectivity over this exquisite recording of three of my very favorite 20th century wind quintets: the Hindemith, Barber, and Janacek. I had never heard Larsson before this recording, but it's a fine fit. You cannot go wrong with this recording. Enjoy."
