Notes & Reviews:

Whereas Vivaldi needs no introduction whatsoever and other names (Caldara, Fasch, Tuma) are familiar to lovers of Baroque music, even specialists have only been getting to know the remarkable oeuvres of Reichenauer and Jiránek over the past few years, owing in large part to Supraphon's Music From Eighteenth-Century Prague series. Prague is that which all these composers had in common; for some of them the city represented a significant part of their career, for others a short episode or merely a way station. The Czech capital was a melting pot in which Dresden, Vienna, Naples and Venice came together and the influences of all the major European musical centres were recast. In aristocrats' exquisite palaces, and to the delight of their masters, these superlative artists performed their own chamber music, whose originality and splendour we can rediscover today. The CD blends the refinement and spontaneous musicality of the renowned Collegium Marianum with the Italian vivacity of their special guest, the phenomenal bassoonist Sergio Azzolini. The splendour and refinement of the music that resounded in Prague Baroque palaces.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
A beautifully conceived and rendered overview of music that would have been heard in Prague. This is a quiet treat. There is quite a bit of music here that you likely have not heard before. The playing is captivating: delicate, understated, and nuanced. The sound is ravishing - well balanced and intimate. I enjoyed the organ continuo; I always think it makes for a warm, comforting sound. The notes give an excellent historical background, as well as a bit of information about some of the musicians.
