Review By Record Geijutsu,

"Schmidl's performance is light and lucid and his embouchure admirable. Madoka Inui's performance is very good, her touch sounds beautifully and lingers in the ear."

Review By HMV Japan,

Peter Schmidl, jewel of the Vienna Philharmonic, is appreciated by clarinet fans around the world. Now he has released a CD for Naxos: Trios by Beethoven and Brahms, pieces by Alban Berg and interesting works with basset horn by Mendelssohn. With those works you will have your fill of the clarinet. Schmidl conveys the heart of music and not only mechanical brilliance. The warm sound, the austerity and the organic, singing elegance of his tone are typically Viennese. Pianist Madoka Inui, often performing with the soloists of the VPO, is harmonizing with her sensual playing, which is more than accompaniment, but backs up the whole performance. She is responsible for the perfection of the CD. RECOMMENDED.

Review By Kleine Zeitung,Naxos,

"With a clarinet tone as soft as butter Peter Schmidl demonstrates the high class of his instrument."
