Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pristine CD transfers showcase a cherishable late flowering for the always elegant Böhm/VPO partnership, the Clarinet Concerto particularly blissful. The Flute Concerto benefits from lively reciprocity and Tripp's mischievous vitality. Cultured playing full of warmth and idiomatic nuance from all concerned then, with Zeman by turns robust and ruminative and verging on perfection.

-- Michael Quinn, Gramophone [12/1998]
