CD Haydn Concertos with Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra:

Opus Klassiek (Aart van der Wal):
“With a rich, brilliant tone he playfully overcomes every technical barrier with ease. His playing is on a level with such greats as Dennis Brain, Barry Tuckwell, Alan Civil en Hermann Baumann.” (George Murray):
“The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has a world class horn player. [..] Jasper de Waal , whose elegant mastery of the horn, makes for an impressive debute. He has a full bright clear tone with a gentle vibrato permeating his sound and he negotiates the considerable demands of this repertoire with an effortless technique.” (Peter Joelson):
“Jasper de Waal, a master of smooth legato playing”

Luister Magazine (Siebe Riedstra):
“Jasper de Waal rightfully deserves the title ‘First Chair’”

Dutch Horn Society (Peter Hoekmeijer):
“He plays the 1st and 2nd Haydn Concertos with delicate and subtle musicality. A notable characteristic of the CD is his brilliant high register and clear technique.” (Jan Luijsterburg):
“De Waal is superb in extremely difficult but always musical solos.”
