Notes & Reviews:

Amilcare Ponchielli's wind concertos are among the most virtuosic works of the romantic era. The oboe had reached the highest degree of virtuosity already during the baroque era. The trumpet only later achieved the same with the invention of the valve.

MusicWeb International, August 2012
The music itself is all appealingly wrought and displays an almost extravagant level of melodic fecundity. Don't expect the sweeping, veristic style of La Gioconda, however...The soloists are all excellent. Giuliano Sommerhalder's clear, open tone transcends the stereotype of the virtuoso trumpeter. He shapes the ornamental bits and the cantabiles alike with a natural-sounding flexibility.
