American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The program contains three delightful chamber sonatas by Giovanni Zamboni. Sonatas 1 and 9 begin with a prelude, followed by a suite of theatrical dances: Alemandas, Gigas, Currentes, Sarabandas, and Gavottas. Sonata 6 differs only in that it begins with an Alemanda. Its suspensions and pedal points give it a suitably grave affect. Croton performs on both a 10-course lute and a 14-course archlute; his notes are in English and German.
