Notes & Reviews:

Schoenberg's involvement with other composers' works, like the Monn and Händel here, amounts to more than mere orchestration, coupling very specific instrumentation with his reinterpretation to recast the work in the modes of the 20th century. In a nod to the history he so lovingly reimagines, his own works are repeatedly characterized by the simultaneous use of Baroque and Classical forms.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The interpretation of the Cello Concerto in the previous disc is a good one. As the soloist in both readings is excellent, this or the couplers may be the decider for a listener. Performances of all the works are virtuosic both by soloists and orchestra. The recording has exceptional clarity; in the cello concerto the orchestral detail really registers. Along with his effective reading of Liszt's tone poems, Markl scores another bulls-eye.
