  A Rewarding Disc December 15, 2013 By Ronald Woodall (Dayton, OH) See All My Reviews "This is a thoughtful selection of works to comprise a CD, as it has enough diversity to make listening to all three at one sitting a pleasure. I especially enjoyed the melodic and dramatic Lukas concerto (a previously unknown composer to me), and the Martinu and Stamitz opuses are also fine. The performances and recording are first-rate. The sound perhaps lacks depth - all the instruments seem equally close - but that's no problem. A winner!" Report Abuse
