Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The distinctively fruity sound of the Vienna horn is wonderfully caught on the superb Naxos disc with its programme perfectly designed to show off the instrument. Wolfgang Tomboeck has been first horn in the Vienna Philharmonic since 1980, and here in all four works he demonstrates what a fine artist he is. The Beethoven Horn Sonata brings a stylish performance, crisp in attack, yet warm too, with the brief central Adagio given the gravity of a funeral march before the sparkling finale. The piano sound is relatively lightweight, which Madoka Inui with her clean articulation turns to advantage in suggesting the sound of a fortepiano.

The Schubert song, Auf dem Strong (‘Upon the River’), with its horn obbligato is parallel with another late song, The Shepherd on the Rock, with its clarinet obbligato. The pure, fresh-toned soprano, Genia Kuhmeier, matches the ripe-toned horn-player, Wolfgang Tomboeck, in the warmth and imagination of her phrasing. A valuable supplement to the instrumental works illustrating the Vienna horn.



Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

In the Adagio and allegro, Op. 70, the distinctively fruity sound of the Vienna horn is wonderfully caught on the superb Naxos disc. Like the other works, the Schumann is warmly done, with Wolfgang Tomboeck producing the ripest tones and the hunting-horn rhythms of the Allegro have an infectious brilliance and swagger.
