Notes & Reviews:

"Almost completely forgotten, Leopold Hoffman's concertos for strings must nevertheless rank among the most ingratiating of their time: Singing cantilena alternates in them with brilliant virtuosity, the soft and melting with the hard and glossy...Lorraine McAslan's well-focused and lustrous tone, open cheerfulness, and crisp virtuosity perfectly complement the composer's musical personality...Strongly recommended." -Maxham, Fanfare
