Notes & Reviews:

". . . In these 40 minutes of music (Quintet in A minor, author's note) there is such an incredible wealth of novelty and diversity that not even a hint of boredom can appear. The Reicha'sche Quintet performs this highly virtuosic piece with their usual mastery. Their balance and interpretation are as perfect as their sheer instrumental technique, and so nothing is left wanting. The three slow movements for solo English horn and four wind players are particularly brilliant. The darker sound blends perfectly, but it also allows for dialogues of short, but intensive delicacy. And the art of the Reicha'sche Quintet playing this music guarantees that this CD will become yet another valuable collector's item, like all their other recordings. If they were this good back in those days, then the invention of the wind quintet was worthwhile, not only for the wind instrument players, but for everyone else . . ." (TIBIA)
