Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
Jones's unpredictable leaps and intervals...are a wizard's brew of Corelli trio sonatas and Vivaldi concertos underpinned by a sinuous Handelian humour that makes it not just unique, but that rare beast in this genre: music actually engaging enough to bear repeated listening...this disc is an electric reminder that this sort of music, when played sympathetically, can take on a life of its own.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
Jones could hardly hope for more devoted advocates than Meyerson and her Finnish colleagues, the three instrumentalists accenting the music's theatrical qualities, variegated colours and special effects. Their sound is robust and sinewy - most effective in the more extrovert movements, if rather too blustery for the lyrical ones.
