What would Wagner’s Tristan be, what would other great opera and orchestral works be without the finely timbred, almost magical sound of the English horn? And yet: has anyone you know ever been to a chamber music concert that featured a solo English horn? Michael Sieg (English horn) and Angelika Merkle (piano) are now making up for this musical deficiency: the two multi-prizewinning artists are releasing their first CD with GENUIN, and the outstanding arrangements of works from Piazzolla to Rachmaninoff, as well as original compositions by Pasculli and Steinmetz, keep us riveted to our loudspeakers: sweetness and strength, virtuoso gems and plaintive songs – the beginning of a new love!?

Gramophone / April 2017
"The art here is not only the playing itself, which is affectingly plangent, but also in the choice of repertory and the juxtapositions. Who’d have guessed that Fauré and Piazolla were so complementary and or how naturally Schullhoff’s Hot-Sonate, originally for Saxophone, works for English Horn?" Andrew Farach-Colton

"Sieg has resisted the temptation to refashion a baroque piece preferring instead to mine the nineteenth and twentieth centuries instead and promoting virtues of lyricism and tonal bloom (...). Good sound quality." by Jonathan Woolf
