I heard about how great Hummel's Septets are so I was excited to get this CD. After hearing the first track, it I was very disappointed, though. I don't claim to be an expert on recorded classical music, but I could tell that something was wrong. Mainly apparent in the first movement of the first Septet, the forte-piano playing is at times very weak and the notes sound jumbled and mechanical. I don't know if this is due to poor playing or an instrument that just cannot keep up with all the fast notes (maybe this is why we don't here classical peroid music played on original instruments very much--original instruments great for baroque but not so much for classical). At times the double base seems out of register with the other instruments as well. The Military Septet was better and an enjoyable piece to listen to.

This recording is definitely the ebst I have heard so far of the wind septets. So energetic, full of passion and power and et the same time fully developed chamber style: every single voice communicates with the others - foll of colours and drive but elobarting each melody... GREAT!
