Notes & Reviews:

This exhilarating performance on period instruments illustrates some of the dramatic changes that wind instruments were undergoing when these concertos were composed. Constantly pushing against technical and expressive boundaries, this music is the product of the close-knit relationships Mozart maintained with the musicians who went on to become his first interpreters.

The Guardian
Van der Zwart's supreme agility makes the added technical challenges of using that instrument hardly relevant, and the whole performance has a lightness of touch and an athletic exuberance that are totally convincing.

Gramophone Magazine
Gottfried von der Goltz, a very talented conductor, clear-sightedly balances his sharp-witted period instrument forces... Mostly, von der Goltz adapts to individual interpretations without sacrificing his own strengths; and they scintillate in his partnership with Teunis Van der Zwart whose brazen tones, piquant stopped notes and swaggering gait in the horn concertos are irresistible.

Sunday Times
Van der Zwart responds with great humour and technical panache to these good-natured works. (He is especially amusing exploiting the flatulence of extreme low notes in the first-movement cadenza of No 4.)... Von der Goltz's robust, earthy way with Mozart, bringing this music out of the salon and into the open air, sets the seal on this outstanding issue.
