Alexi Utkin's playing, like on his other Caro Mitis SACDs, is stunning. I have heard few oboists who demonstrate such a total mastery of what is perhaps the most fiendish instrument, while having such a warm and pleasing sound. This selection alone makes this SACD a winner. (...) I will eventually sound like a broken record when I review future Caro Mitis SACDs. Let's face it, these SACDs are some of the BEST SOUNDING RECORDINGS available!!! The Polyhymnia team has definitely got their ducks in a row when the record the various Caro Mitis artists. HIGHLY recommended!!!!
