“altogether this is as tempting a Hummel collection as any we know … His G major (mandolin) Concerto here in even more agreeable form, as Op.73 Piano Concertino, and Martin Galling is even more persuasive, helped by a very spirited backing in Berlin …also La Galante, a lilting Rondo for solo piano … Zukerman and Faerber return for Hummel’s Bassoon Concerto, impressive to be discussed in the same breath as Mozart’s, particularly with this splendid soloist, who is deliciously jocular in the characterful finale. The disc concludes with Septet Militaire, Op.114: the very happy finale, with its ingenious upward scale, is most felicitous” (Gramophone)
