Notes & Reviews:

Mozart's sublime Oboe Concerto and Bassoon Concerto (he wrote only one of each) are conjured into thrilling life by Arcangelo under the direction of Jonathan Cohen. In the Haydn Sinfonia concertante - written at the very zenith of the composer's artistic popularity - four soloists combine with the orchestra in a spiral of theatrical competition.

Financial Times, 30th May 2015
Soloists get to enjoy the music, their quirky charisma shining through.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
There's nothing dutiful here...Not only is there fine focus to the oboe and bassoon...but every solo line is thoughtfully inflected, as if this were really four solo concertos being played at the same time. You sense the fun they have with the music while never playing fast and loose with the basic pulse. A joy from start to finish.
