Notes & Reviews:

"Witty, sweet, noble, and tender, the works themselves are the peak of the solo horn repertoire and Brain's performances are the living, breathing incarnation of the works. His tone is warm and strong. His intonation is without crack or blemish. His technique is fluent and effortless. His interpretations are as one with the music -- bucolic, heroic, naïve, urbane, and full of life and love. Accompanied by an obviously awestruck Herbert von Karajan leading the Philharmonia of London -- Brain's orchestra mates when he's not playing concertos -- and produced by the masterful and magisterial Walter Legge, Brain's performances are so beguiling, so charming, so enchanting that one hearing will be all it takes to convince any listener anywhere in the world that herein lies aural Elysium." -All Music Guide

Penguin Guide
Self-recommending. Boyd Neel once said that Dennis was the finest Mozart player on any instrument.
