Luke Pfeil
American Record Guide, July 2016

Stefan Schilli and his colleagues from the Bavarian Radio Symphony play with suppleness and elegance. The music of Koechlin is somewhat under-recorded, so this offering fills a gap—and the performance is flawless. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Fanfare, May 2016

…the playing is quite good throughout. Stefan Schilli’s performances are not actually that different from those of Lencsés in much of this music, for tone and interpretative approach. …The rest of the musicians are well known in Germany, and their performances suggest that this album wasn’t thrown together by friends between manifold engagements. The Sonata à 7 in particular possesses a degree of knowledgeable and sensitive interaction that lends depth to its brevity. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Refined played and tonal beauty are the main characteristics of this charming recording. © 2015 Pizzicato

Tim Ashley
Gramophone, December 2015

Schilli is a superb instrumentalist, engaged, fluid and technically assured throughout. Pianist Oliver Triendl joins him for Au loin and the Sonata, the latter fleet-footed, elegant and extrovert… the sense of ensemble is flawless. An immaculate disc, beautifully done. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

The Guardian, November 2015

All are strangely haunting and played with elegance and consummate refinement by Schilli and his colleagues. © 2015 The Guardian Read complete review
