 Neglected gems March 2, 2014 By Ted F. (Toogoolawah, Queensland) See All My Reviews "I may be wrong but I believe that it is the first recording of this lovely music. I can't understand why so much of Hummels output is not better known, the trumpet concerto (and very fine it is too) seems to be the sole exception. Anyway, the music ( somewhere between the style of Mozart and early Beethoven) on the cd is a delight and played brilliantly as you would expect from this fine orchestra." Report Abuse
