Ludwig rose to the occasion with a piece that should prove popular with audiences as well as English horn players. Piccola gets off to a strong start and takes its audience through a ten-minute tour of styles and musical references.
 
Ludwig blends the English horn and its partners with a sure sense of the special qualities of each voice. That horn is the show’s acknowledged star, but every instrument has moments such as the section in which a tinkling harp counterpointed the thunder from the rest of the ensemble. –BSR
