Notes & Reviews:

Infamous for the suspected murder of Mozart, composer Antonio Salieri is rarely recognized for his significant contribution to the musical life of the Imperial capital of Vienna. Recorded here are his two concerti and symphony, "La Veneziana" - all which bear witness to Salieri's gift for opera. While there is no evidence supporting his responsibility in Mozart's death, there is surely evidence enough on this disc to prove Salieri's great talent is worthy of much recognition.

American Record Guide
The music is lively and pleasant to listen to - indeed... The musicians do justice to this enjoyable music and, given the relatively unusual nature of the program, this will be an excellent addition to your collection.

Fanfare
Spirited performances by the Budapest Strings, with a major assist from the always estimable Lajos Lencsés, make a strong case for Salieri's music. Lencsés teams with concertmaster Béla Bánfalvi and cellist Károly Botvay, the group's artistic director, in the triple concerto and makes beautiful music with flutist János Bálint in the flute and oboe concerto. It all adds up to a most enjoyable disc... this new Capriccio disc is well worth hearing.

MusicWeb International
The quality of the music, performances and recording combine to add to my enjoyment of this issue. If only Capriccio could have found more music to boost the playing time or reissued it at a lower price, my appreciation would have been almost complete.

Allmusic.com
One might say that this music feels more mature and textured, whereas the latter very often placed a strong emphasis on melody. But it is best to simply evaluate Salieri's works on their own terms, and if these pieces are representative, they are impressive.
