Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
Holliger brings a wonderful sense of poetry and lyricism to the music, wistful, and elegiac in slow movements, athletic and sprightly in faster ones. Guaranteed to raise the spirits and lighten the darkest of moods.



Reviews

Very Nice!
An excellent selection of Baroque instrumental music, all beautifully played by various ensembles.
