Wind instruments in their original sound
Amazing what the two natural horns achieve (especially in the quintetts for two oboes, two horns and bassoon) and the attractive sound of the two clarinets in the larger setting. Carin van Heerden and her colleague on the second oboe carry off a witty and lithe dialogue […] 66 minutes of truely excellent „entertainment“ by the undisputed master of melodic invention.
DrehPunktKultur, Reinhard Kriechbaum, 29 January 2010

The wind ensemble of the L’Orfeo Barockorchester, directed by the oboist Carin van Heerden, present the entertaining masterpieces with virtuosic charm and delicate sensitivity. Mozart’s comments on Myslivecek’s sonatas also apply to these works: they are exceptionally effective and should please everyone […].
