Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The Vienna Octet's remake, recorded with Sir Clifford Curzon in 1957 when Boskovsky was still leading, is one of those gramophone classics difficult to knock off its perch." -- Gramophone [10/2001]
"How much [one] could learn from Sir Clifford Curzon about the art of listening!... I would recommend Curzon and his Viennese colleagues...for their rhythmic lilt and spontaneous smiling charm. -- Gramophone [10/1991]
"On [the] Trout recording the andantino variations are taken fairly briskly, loving the beauty of the music without loving it to death, and there can be no higher praise..." -- Brian Wilson, MusicWeb International

"I was SO disappointed. This is a rather colorless recording of the Trout. I really don't know what to say. With a good version, one can see the sparkling water and feel the energy of the fish racing upstream. Well, maybe in this version, the spent fish is travelling downstream."
