"Throughout the program, the group plays with faultless ensemble and intonation; the recorded sound is exemplary...Vento Chiaro easily outclasses most wind quintets that have greater seniority and more recordings to their credit, providing an entertaining and expertly-played recital. Once again, this disc makes one hope for more CDs of core wind quintet repertoire from the same source." --Fanfare
"The day of the woodwind quintet may be dawning... muscular thrust and individualized character" --Los Angeles Times
"Spotless finger work, sensitive linear phrasing, crisp accents and a thoughtfully blended tone quality... an ideal listening experience"
"...clean ensemble playing. Not a musical hair was mussed during the entire program" --The Enterprise
