Notes & Reviews:

As a chief representative of early Viennese classicism, Georg Christoph Wagenseil (1715-1777) united Italian, French and German stylistic elements in his works. The Six Quartets for Low Strings on this double disc occupy a special position in his chamber music, simply by virtue of their unusual scoring and the type of classical four-movement quartet that was just coming into being. Piccolo Concerto Wien under the direction of Roberto Sensi introduces us to a music notable both for its music-historical significance and that typically Viennese quality: charm.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Piccolo Concerto Wien divides the recording between violas and cellos. Clarity of harmonic movement is often achieved by some voices employing vibrato. This is a fine presentation of some very attractive music.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2013
With nothing higher than violas on the top lines, and a double bass permanently in the frame, Wagenseil's urbane quartets inhabit a richly burnished soundworld, ravishingly realised here.
