Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The combination of Stephen Hough and wind players from the BPO makes for sparkling performances of these two quintets... It is noticeable that the Berlin horn is less plummy than the Viennese, and in the slow movement of the Mozart Hough and his partners take a lighter view than their rivals, highlighting the tenderness. Hough and the Berliners also bring out the stylistic contrasts between Mozart and the youthful Beethoven, who expressly adopted the layout of the Mozart Quintet.
