Reviews

Selected by Peter Holman in Goldberg 10 as one of ten CDs for a desert island.

 

The transfer to CD is excellent: play this to your musical friends and get them to guess when it was recorded.

Early Music Review

The excellent musicianship displayed is quite simply beyond praise and the vibrancy and life made evident in the music is a real joy to hear.  The booklet contains photographs and histories of all four instruments used.
