Notes & Reviews:

A breathtaking Baroque banquet to celebrate 20 years of music making! A delightful & surprising program interpreted by the Petri/Hannibal Duo, who has appeared in concert halls & festivals around the world, giving nearly 1,500 concerts in programs of music from the late renaissance & early baroque, the classical & romantic periods, to contemporary works written especially for them. Together, they have released 5 CDs including Kreisler Inspirations (2001) which received the prestigious Deutscher Schallplattenpreis. "It also goes without saying that Michala Petri has no peer today as a master of her instrument, and she wrings more color & expressive intensity from the recorder than you ever believed possible" David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com

Fanfare
Petri's playing is so riveting one could listen to her play anything and make music of the gods out of it. The combination of recorder and archlute lends a timeless quality to these performances that transports this listener into the intimate setting of an 18th-century drawing room, and the SACD recording enhances that ambiance. Petri makes these pieces her own, whether they belong to the recorder or not. So just listen and enjoy.

Fanfare
This disc presents some of the most beautiful and most intricate music of the Baroque era... the artists on this CD play an intricate decorated version that no amateur is likely ever to attempt. Needless to say, it charms the ear... the best-known works on this disc are the Corelli La Folia and the Tartini "Devil's Trill" Sonata. Both are played with intelligence and precision... Petri plays all the lustrous silvery decorations that illuminate the background provided by Hannibal's lute. The disc finale is Handel's B?-Major Sonata, with its memorable songlike base.

MusicWeb International
Fans of Michala Petri will need little persuading to acquire this disc... he highly virtuoso playing of Michala Petri soars unrestrained over lightly plucked harmonies.

Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist
Wife-and-husband duo Michala Petri (recorder) and Lars Hannibal (archlute) present here a winning program... Petri's virtuosity is legendary, and over the course of a 40-year career she has lost not a step. Hannibal is an equally skillful accompanist, and the program is a delight.

Southern California Early Music Society Newsletter
Petri-Hannibal have recorded their most popular Baroque hits ... The playing is ravishing, the sound is almost decadently intimate.

Allmusic.com
This release by Danish recorder virtuosa Michala Petri has a couple of points of interest for those looking for a fun introduction to the world of Baroque recorder music. ... the biggest attraction is the playing of Michala Petri herself. There are lots of young players with inventive ideas in the recorder repertory, but few that could handle the crushing transcription of Tartini's "Devil's Trill" sonata on offer here, and few capable of the mixture of tonal control and musicality that she manages throughout. The accompaniment is provided by the solo archlute of Lars Hannibal, a nice change from the usual keyboards and a richly resonant sound that defines a large musical space when paired with a recorder in its upper reaches. This in turn is captured effectively in the engineering of producer Preben Iwan in the OUR Recordings studio in Copenhagen. An unusually satisfying collection of recorder music even for those who think they don't like the recorder.

Audiophile Audition
instruments on the soundstage are outstanding.
