"Wally Kleucker's Horn Concerto received its world premiere performance already in the year it was composed, 1978, played by the composer's wife, Malinda Kleucker, who has once again acted as her husband's splendid interpreter. It has been a long time since we have heard such beautiful phrasing and coherent horn playing." from Frederiksberg Amts Avis (Denmark), March, 1987
