The Great Gate of Kiev is in itself huge. But with the eight horns of german hornsound plus percussion amplification it becomes gigantic! After their successful Verdi-Wagner Portrait "Siegfried and Violetta" the world-class horn players appear again in 8.1 wide-screen format on their second GENUIN-CD. However, before the listener is blasted away by the sound of the Great Gate, he travels through a veritable musical Jurassic Park: spooked by The Gnome, a witches' sabbath on the Bald Mountain, and morbid waltzes and emotional suffering with Romeo and Juliet. On the program: Mussorgsky, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev – here dances the Russian bear!

Film Music: A Neglected Art
"The arrangement is cleverly designed and smoothly flows so that the highlights of the work are all included. This particular arrangement would not have been possible without the fine talents of Simon Rossler, percussionist for the Berlin Philharmonic."

American Record Guide
"A large horn ensemble needs strong high and low players, plus beef yet clarity in the middle. This terrific group has all that—it’s spectacular."
