Notes & Reviews:

Although Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari is known mainly for his operatic compositions (La vedova scaltra is available on Naxos CD 8.660225- 26 and DVD 2.110234-35), he wrote a number of sublimely expressive and lyrical orchestral works, devoting the majority of his time in later life to composing instrumental music. The three delightfully melodic, rhythmically buoyant and, at times elegiac works featured on this recording represent his complete wind concerto output. In 2002 Francesco La Vecchia was appointed Artistic Director and Resident Conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma. Under his leadership the orchestra has rapidly achieved success in Europe and in highly successful tours to St Petersburg, Madrid, Belgrade, Brussels, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, London, Athens, Berlin, Beijing and Shanghai.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Overall, this is beautiful music. For listeners with refined ears, find your way to the CPO recording for the oboe works or Kim Walker's recording on Gallo. For the rest of you, encourage your local symphony to perform these works.

MusicWeb International
The music is all very charming and tuneful... what we have here... is a disc containing well-crafted music with underlying elegiac, wistful feelings in the slow movements and a Rossini-like sparkle in the faster passages.
