Notes & Reviews:

Frieder Bernius, more than anyone else, knows how to focus more attention on lesser known composers who were not active in the great musical centers and make their voices heard. The orchestral works and arias recorded here demonstrate that Knecht, both during his time in Biberach and later in Stuttgart, was neither totally cut off from the musical developments in the musical centers nor indifferent to them, but creatively enriched them with his own approach and solutions.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The fine period performances are marred only occasionally and slightly by whiny strings. It would be interesting to hear the symphony with modern instruments. Sarah Wegener handles the arias with a warm, pleasant tone, expressing them simply and directly. Sound is excellent. Disc time is short.
