Review:
"Partnering with numerous local colleagues, the Cleveland Orchestra's principal horn here speaks his piece about the major works of chamber music for his instrument. What gorgeous, probing statements [Richard King] makes." (Cleveland.com)

"Probably most people who don't happen to play the horn haven't bothered to collect CDs that feature the instrument. This recording--which shows every indication of becoming a classic--should be an exception. ..Obviously a labor of love, the disc is also a testament to the spirit of collaboration."
