"Tempos are well judged almost throughout, and especially so, perhaps, in the Suite in B minor for solo flute and string orchestra, Barthold Kuijken is the soloist and he gives us an elegant and beautifully poised account of the dances." (Gramophone on the Orchestral suites)

"Anyone who heard La Petite Bande under its leader. Sigiswald Kuijken, at (the) BBC Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, London will have a good idea of the sort of brisk, Incisive approach which they adopt. Tempos are well judged almost throughout, and especially so, perhaps, in the Suite in B minor for solo flute and string orchestra, Barthold Kuijken is the soloist and he gives us an elegant and beautifully poised account of the dances; the Rondeau, in particular, succeeds where so many performances fail, by dint of the subtle application of unequal rhythms and the avoidance of excessive emphasis which can make that movement sound so laboured. The lavish appoggiaturas, too, give refinement and 'lift'." (Gramophone on the Orchestral suites)
