8.572294 MENDELSSOHN Lobgesang
“Those listeners who like their Mendelssohn fleet-footed and light as air should be well satisfied with Märkl’s sparkling reading of this wonderful score.”
-Julian Haylock, Classic FM Magazine, March 2011

“This new Leipzig perofmnace, finely played and sung, and spaciously recorded, could win over many doubters to Mendelssohn’s splendid symphony-cum-cantata. At the Naxos price, it’s a true bargain.”
-Richard Wigmore, Gramophone Magazine, March 2011


8.570964 SAINT-SAËNS Music for Wind Instruments
“Saint-Saëns’s acute ear for the personality of particular instruments is nowhere more conspicuous than in the three sonatas that he composed in the last year of his life, 1921. These final forays into the realms of chamber music also show Saint-Saëns winnowing his style, so that, while still having recourse to the generous fund of lyricism on which he had always been able to capitalise, he now wrote with conscious economy of means. The member of Canada’s National Arts Centre Wind Quintet appreciate and convey these facets in performances that encapsulate the Gallic charm and finesse of the music.”
-Geoffrey Norris, Gramophone Magazine, March 2011


8.570783 LYAPUNOV Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2
“The two piano concertos written in the grand tradition, merit occasional airlings and are well served in these performances, as is the spirited Rhapsody
-Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph, 22nd January 2011
