Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Martin Pearlman has found the ideal collaborator in Christina Day Martinson. This is a story-telling par excellence, Martinson's polished technique and elegant musicianship fired in the kiln of imagination to produce mind-pictures of such vividness that the Greek term ekphrasis, with all its rhetorical associations, hardly covers it. ...Pearlman, Boston Baroque's playing combines supreme technical precision with unexpected psychological depth: the early part of Summer's opening Allegro is as tension-filled as the air before a storm; Winter's Allegro non molto has a frozen emptiness that's almost metaphysical.
