"The bassoon playing on this recording is as good as it gets...This is the best engineered recording for a solo instrument with both single instrument and orchestral accompaniment that I've reviewed...The balance between Mr. Morelli and the orchestra should be a benchmark for future recordings...I have also been inspired by Frank Morelli, and this is about the best example of why. When I finish listening to it, I want nothing more than to pick up my bassoon and tune in to my own musical language, as Mr. Morelli does in his recordings."
