Reviews

‘There are plenty of other recorded performances of Mozart’s and Weber’s concertos to choose from, even a couple of Spohr’s, but these have acquired classic status … De Peyer gives a fluent, easy performance of Mozart’s concerto – the Adagio is gracefully phrased, without sentimentality, and the Rondo has a delightful spring to it. The record is a pleasant tribute to his artistry’ Gramophone
