Album Remarks & Appraisals:
A tasting plate of gorgeous music! Experience a spicy 17th-century mix from Southern Europe, inspired by songs and dances of love, fire, beauty and freedom. The 2009 ARIA Award winners bring earthy improvisations and an adventurous spirit to the Baroque in this brand new album.
Classic FM Magazine
In addition to playing with a fabulous sense of joie de vivre, the Australian Brandenburg players demonstrate a chameleon-like ability to take on or subtly inject different musical styles into their Baroque starting-points....'crossover' Baroque performed with freshness, skill and charisma by real classical pros.
