Notes & Reviews:

The first disc from the Russian Chamber Music for Wind Instruments series, which includes recordings of rarely performed quintets for piano and wind instruments by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Anton Rubinstein, performed by outstanding representatives of the 20th century Russian performing school.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
Fruity horn to plangent bassoon, the pungent colours of the Russian wind players lend a distinctive timbral authenticity in forthright performances of a pair of youthful, piano-driven quintets.

MusicWeb International, 14th May 2014
It's as well that the players are so characterful given the [Rubinstein's] rich and broad scheme...There is much vitalising playing to be heard in a work [the Rimsky-Korsakov] that is less monumental than its earlier counterpart but no less enjoyable.
