‘But toward the end, a miracle occurred. The French horn came in. I had forgotten that Stefan Dohr was in this orchestra! His little solo was a piece of startling perfection. Dohr is not only one of the great horn players, he is one of the great instrumentalists. His moment—and Stravinsky’s, we should add—practically made the evening.’

Jay Nordlinger – The New Criterion 

‘During the Berliners' concerts this week, for example, it has been hard to miss the imposing artistic presence of the orchestra's principal horn player, Stefan Dohr, whose range of expression, stentorian and seductive by turns, was one of the stand-out contributions to the Mahler Fourth Symphony on Monday.’

Then Stefan Dohr’s horn solo in the Pavane pour une infante défunte — an almost saxophone-like sweetness and flexibility to his tone — left me wondering if anyone could have played it better.

Hugo Shirley - Financial Times

‘effortless phrasing and burnished tone … Dohr liberated some extraordinary voices from his instrument.’    

    

William Dart - New Zealand Herald

‘… a suave, playful Strauss that allowed Dohr to exercise his formidable technique and musicianship with a stylish insouciance…’

The West Australian

‘It is invidious to pick out anyone, but special mention should be made of … Stefan Dohr’s fruity and golden horn timbres’

Colin Anderson - Classical Source

‘Headed by the excellent Brodsky Quartet, the disc features a variety of chamber configurations, including string quintet with French horn in the, by turns, contemplative and riotous Dance of the Wooden Sticks (composed 2008, and here featuring an outstanding performance from horn player Stefan Dohr).’
