Notes & Reviews:

Think you know Italian baroque chamber music? Think again! The range, diversity - even wackiness - is remarkable, as illustrated by Flights of Fantasy, an album of acute inventiveness by Avie stalwart Monica Huggett and the chamber soloists of her Irish Baroque Orchestra. Created in 1996, the period-instrument Irish Baroque Orchestra occupies a fundamental place in Ireland's musical landscape. Ten years in, the mantle of artistic director was assumed by Monica Huggett, who has created a decades-long career of critically acclaimed and award-winning recordings including the Billboard chart-topping, Grammy-nominated Bach Orchestral Suites.

The Times
There's always an electric jolt about Huggett's gut-stringed violin, and she needs every surge of energy for the virtuoso tricks of 17th-century Italian and Italianate chamber music...Huggett's in the best of company with nine spirited soloists from the Irish Baroque Orchestra.
