Notes & Reviews:

The composition of each of these sprightly works reflects the age and ability of the intended performer; the range of the solo part gradually becomes smaller, first losing the top notes and later the lowermost ones as Leutgeb's capabilities declined

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Ab Koster's fluid singing quality and mellow tone are very appealing, and his technique is excellent in terms of intonation and flow. He is especially adept at using stopping to achieve the muted effect on certain notes. The result is a tone that comes close to the tone of the Viennese single horn, and that is no mean trick. I agree with Chakwin that the playing is good on the whole. The result is pleasant, tuneful, and nicely Mozartean.
