. . . [a] crisp, jewel-like sonority . . . the playing is deft, taut and exciting . . . [Stravinsky / "Pulcinella-Suite", "Apollo"]: an outstanding record in every way . . . it is the elegant, characterful solos . . . that places this account in a special category . . . I had forgotten just how outstanding these recordings are . . . [R. Strauss, Wagner, Baermann, Schoenberg / CD 5]: a simply glorious and very full disc . . . [Vivaldi / "Le quattro stagioni" / CD 6]: Alan Loveday is the brilliant, fantastical soloist here, arguably unsurpassed . . . The music-making has verve and colour and the sonics are top-notch . . . Everything is immaculate as per usual with Nielsen's "Little Suite" and Dag Wirén's "Serenade for Strings" giving the ASMF an opportunity to display its trademark rhythmic snap . . . Grieg's reflective "Elegiac Melodies" are unimprovably good. A lovely disc in every way . . . outstanding material . . . [the music-making] is simply tremendous.
