Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
...The playing is very fine and the energy of the live performance is palpable. The recording does give a sense of the intimacy of the venue; we are up quite close to the performers... Recommended for the music, performances, engineering and a very unique concept ... read more ...

Listening to this program you will come across many different European styles, from some of the most famous works of Corelli to those of lesser-known composers such as Castrucci, Mossi, Valentini and Montanari; a rich mix of formal and aesthetic visions, though all refined through the same profoundly Roman filter.' - Riccardo Minasi (Music Director & Violinist)

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The sturdier K&K release contains a booklet devoted to photography. I recommend both of these for the rare music they introduce us to and the enthusiastic performances.
