"... All the pieces recieve performances worthy of them. Pianist Fali Pavri ... proves himself to be an excellent soloit in every way, both technically and interpretively ... conductor Marc Andreae, the composer’s grandson, leads ideal performances, and the Bournemouth Symphony plays splendily. The recorded sound is excellent ... this release is enthusiastically recommended."
James A Altena - Fanfare - November/December 2013
"... I highly recommend this for the works with piano and the curious will find it rewarding. The orchestra plays well and the sound is spacious."
Stephen Estep - American Record Guide - November/December 2013
"... These performances under Marc Andreae (the composer’s grandson) are unfailingly sympathetic, with commendably shapely contributions from pianist Fali Pavri and violinist Christian Altenburger, and some nicely turned playing by the Bournemouth SO. Truthful sound and balance, too. Inquisitive collectors can confidently investigate."
Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone magazine Awards Issue - 2013
"...These performances surely cannot be improved upon for authencity, and the recording quality is first-class." *****
James Palmer - Musical Opinion magazine - May-June 2013
"...Well worth the investment for those who are curious about Andreae the composer and for adherents of catchily romantic concertos."
Rob Barnett - MusicWeb-International.com – February 2013
"Guild’s attention to the music of the Swiss composer and conductor Volkmar Andreae is most welcome; earlier issues of his chamber and orchestral music are complemented this new issue, recorded by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and conducted by the composer’s grandson, Marc Andreae. The four works are all concertos or concertante compositions, and are given the best possible advocacy, though the violin concerto is comfortably the most distinguished and individual piece on the disc."
Barry Forshaw - Classical CD Choice - 11 February 2013
"...As on Guild’s previous Andreae orchestral disc, the composer’s son Marc Andreae directs the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in performances that are thoroughly idiomatic and committed. The soloists, as I’ve pointed out, are excellent, as is the recorded sound. Thoroughly recommended."
