Stephen Eddins, September 2011

…Baumann’s virtuosity is on most spectacular display. Of special interest is the disc devoted to music for hunting horn ensemble. Grande Messe de Saint Hubert by Jules Cantin and arranged by Baumann is strikingly eccentric but effective; it includes ensembles of both valve horns playing in modern equal temperament and hunting horns playing in natural temperament.

Baumann is accompanied by an impressive array of musicians, including Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, led by Kurt Masur, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, led by Pinchas Zukerman, and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, led by Iona Brown. The sound of the recordings made by Philips between 1983 and 1990 is consistently good. This is a collection that fans of horn music who don’t demand period instrument performances will not want to miss.

Barry Kilpatrick
American Record Guide, September 2011

The sonics are excellent—all voices natural, clear, and in balance…Hermann Baumann is one of the great horn soloists of our time…this marvelous collection captures some of his best work.
