About

“Overture is probably Kuhlau’s best-known work... Maga gets pleasing results... very good performances” - Penguin Guide, 3 stars

“Denmark was his country of adoption... Overture ... fresh and engaging work which owes much to Mendelssohn... Concertino for two horns ... a "serious divertimento", as Antony Hodgson puts it in his excellent notes... Lanzky-Otto and Ree Wekre are first rate, while Michael Ponti is no less admirable in the Piano Concerto.” - Gramophone

“Kuhlau’s reverence for and friendship with Beethoven informed much of his music. His C major Piano Concerto is closely modelled on Beethoven’s (try Michael Ponti’s superb recording – if you can track it down)”
- Gramophone

“The Odense orchestra play with much zest under Othmar Maga in The Elf's Hill Overture” (Gramophone)
