Notes & Reviews:

Three world premiere recordings of high-quality 19th century orchestral works: this alone will cause listeners to sit up and take notice. The Concertante for Violin and Cello, the Horn Concerto and the fully fledged Symphony were composed by three members of the same family, and is surely unique and a cause for jubilation amongst experts.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Performances of all the pieces are good, with a nice mix of vigor and refinement and lifelike recorded sound. Badoff's interpretations are assured, bringing out the best in the music. Special praise must go to French horn soloist Robert Langbehn. This is horn playing of Dennis Brain magnitude. He handles the music's most treacherous rapids with total control and always with beautiful tone. Langbehn's knockout playing alone makes this album worthwhile.
