Notes & Reviews:
Sunday Times, 29th April 2012
Minasi takes the view that, whether the eight pieces here are by Handel or not, they are worth playing and hearing. His dazzlingly fresh interpretative ideas, employing techniques that owe as much to the great Romantic virtuosos as to baroque specialists, will raise purist Handelian hackles, but this is a revelatory disc.
Gramophone Magazine, September 2012
These performances are excellent for their lyrical sweetness, stylistic sensibilities, imaginative expressiveness and immaculate recorded sound (recorded in a quiet chapel in Siena). Riccardo Minasi's lively playing is never clumsy and seldom forced.
BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
The sumptuous underlay sometimes over-eggs the music, yet it's very much at one with Minasi's warmly lyrical yet purposeful approach...Idiosyncrasies aside, compelling stuff.
