Notes & Reviews:

According to Gramophone magazine the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra is the best orchestra in the world, so you won't find greater quality performances than this release with the Concertgebouw and its principals as soloists. The oboe and violin soloists shine with unrivaled beauty, rendered even more gorgeous thanks to Pentatone's high quality recording techniques.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
There is very little to criticise here, and these are all very fine performances. The sound is pretty crisp supporting an historically informed approach with brisk tempi, a discretely balanced harpsichord helping things along and admirable transparency of texture and articulation.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
These musicians are drawn from the great Concertgebouw Orchestra: Vesko Eschkenazy is the orchestra's concertmaster, Tjeerd Top plays in the first violin section, and Alexei Ogrintchouk is principal oboe. As one would expect, the musicians produce a very beautiful sound. Eschkenazy plays a Guarnerius built in1738, and Top plays a Stradivarius built in 1713. The SACD process captures the lushness of the sound very well.
