Notes & Reviews:

Father and son are united on this engaging release, with the CD heavily weighted towards the former's music. Tracing his most famous works (the Toy Symphony, Musical Sleigh Ride and the Peasant Wedding), the Kammerorchester Berlin and the Staatskapelle Dresden (directed by esteemed conductor Otmar Suitner) are at the helm to perform these endearing, popular works.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
These are mostly 1977 recordings. Everything sounds just fine, and the conducting is also fine. Suitner was good at Mozart (he does the Joke), and Koch follows in his steps. It's a good program of cheerful, lighthearted music, well played. It is nice to have all these pieces on one disc.

Notes & Reviews:
