Notes & Reviews:

"This remarkable collection drawn from Universal's back catalog makes an intelligent and affectionate tribute to as fine a collection of principal wind and brass players as ever have graced a modern symphony orchestra. Every performance is distinguished, and if some have been bettered elsewherethe vast majority of them have notbest of all is the CD premiere of Barenboim's extraordinary Schumann Konzertstuck for Four Hornsone of the most remarkable (and best sounding) recordings of massed horns ever madea decent Ravel Bolero under Solti makes a fine encoreThe attractive accompanying booklet and classy packaging complete a production as appealing to the eye as it is to the ear. DG deserves all credit for assembling this extremely intelligent and musically distinguished release." - Classics Today (10/10)
