Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine (A Recital': Corelli, Torelli, Locatelli, Albicastro, Handel)
When a British ensemble records a program like this, it sticks its neck out in no uncertain manner. Consciously or unconsciously it challenges every chamber orchestra from Aachen to Zagreb ... Here is nearly an hour's music, played with precision, care, consummate musicianship, and with more sense of style than all the chamber orchestras in Europe put together ... Neville Marriner and his Academy are to be congratulated on a magnificent disc debut, and I have no hesitation in declaring this to be one of the three or four most outstanding items in the L'Oiseau-Lyre catalogue.
Gramophone Magazine (A Second Recital': Manfredini, Albinoni, Avison, Handel, Telemann)
There is nothing anonymous about this playing; it positively tingles with life.
