  • Description

    "I must say that these evergreen works translate extremely well to the wind medium, lending them a certain colour and character that could be missed by the full orchestra." - ClassicalNet

    "Of course performing with just a wind octet (plus double bass and percussion where necessary), Consortium Classicum can give us the sort of focused, crisp, well-balanced performances that more resemble the litheness of period performance than the fullness of the romantic symphony orchestra. For me, this is a big plus. In all the pieces, the group's playing is a joy. The bass lines are full of bounce and not too thick and heavy. The passagework is fleet and nimble with some particularly impressive flutter-tonguing from the flutes" - MusicWeb International
