"Incredible horn playing and a nice collection of lesser know works for horn."
Not Just the Same Old Horn Music

"As an amateur horn player, it was refreshing to hear a fine player like Mr. Hackleman release a CD of lesser known horn works. He, as usual, plays them wonderfully. The music is all 20th century music, but of a more traditional stripe that I think kind of got buried under the much more dissonant (or serial) styles in the 20's -70's. Music lovers seem to be rediscovering these composers and its exciting! The only piece that didn't thrill me was the Butterworth, but I will admit that I have never connected with his writing style. I'm especially taken by the combination of bravado and tenderness found in the Kurt Atterberg Concerto. A must hear!"
