Reviews

‘Half century on, the golden age of Viennese music-making flares gloriously into life again [in KV 334] … I would say that this classic, out of the catalogues now for more than 30 years, is still the version to have … [Boskovsky’s] playing, and the playing of the ensemble as a whole, is always burnished, idiomatic, intensely alive’ Gramophone

“Where to begin singing the praises of this most enchanting record I do not know” (KV 287) Gramophone

“this is a delightful little record, and highly recommended” (KV 113) Gramophone
