Steen Søgaard in Jyllands-Posten (3/3 - 07):

 

“... The slow movement of the oboe concerto starts out with a quiet, elegical oboe solo in a melodic and expressive free tonality, but in the orchestra strong walls of sound are accumulated, that eventually breaks down, again leaving room for an imaginative oboe solo. Contrasts are sharpened further in the third movement, where expressive, lamenting oboe solo of the introduction is interrupted by harsh chordal strokes in the orchestra and little by little a heavy rhythm and a more dissonant tonal language makes its way into the orchestral part.

With Gordon Hunt as the soloist, the piece had a fine and well-cared-for sounding performance”

 

 

Ole Straarup in Århus Stiftstidende (3/3 - 07):

 

“...-(Gunge) is not ashamed about what is delightful, and he garnishes with a moderately modern style, of great textural friendliness and interesting combinations of instruments. The combined use of f. ex. harpsichord and harp in the first movement produced a dashing noise-and-note effect. The second movement, Largo, had that special sinking feeling. With singing solo oboe over strings as well as the full orchestra, the music smoothly surrounded the listener... -But conflict was lying in wait, and the third movement was more into our present world, with orchestral aggression and waving battle...

The solo part was performed with slender elegance by Gordon Hunt and was alertly accompanied and counter-parted by orchestra and conductor, Christoph Eberle.”
