Notes & Reviews:

Born in Santa Fee, Argentinia the young Nury Guarnaschelly is one of the most beloved french horn player of our times. She was 1st solo horn player at the Gustav Mahler Chamber Orchstra under the direction of Claudio Abbado and was asked afterwards to play in several well known orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin. For over 16 years she held the position of 1st solo horn player in the Radio Symphony Orchestra in Vienna.

For this recording, she is accompagnied by the successful young talented Signum Quartet, one of the most interesting new String Quartets of the last years. Their Debut-Album with string quartets from Joseph Thuille was very enthusiastic criticized and was awarded with the &dbquo;Pizziccato" Music Prize for best recordings.

American Record Guide
She has a rock-solid technique, tremendous evenness of sound (no falsetto-sounding high register out of her!) and phrases beautifully... the main pleasure from her Mozart is how easily and naturally the performance flows. Her tempos are sensible: moderate and at ease in the first movement, gently moving forward in the slow movement, and lively but not hectic in the finale. She's clean in the technical passages, whole-hearted in the lyrical ones, and always gives playing that's at the service on the music instead of the other way around.

Allmusic.com
Guarnaschelli plays... with unimpeachable technique, a lovely, round, Germanic tone, and a seamless, velvety legato. She and the Signum Quartet approach the material with respect for the conventions of the period in terms of ornamentation and use of vibrato... general audiences should find their playing attractive. The sound is clean, warm, and beautifully balanced.

Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist
Guarnaschelli's tone is buttery and burnished (no small feat on her notoriously difficult instrument), and the ensemble playing is consistently warm and sweetly energized. These are delightful pieces, very pleasingly played, and the album is strongly recommended to all classical collections.
