MusicWeb International, 10th April 2014
I am enthusiastic about this recording; Smoot plays Muffat on rather different instruments with fresh interpretations. This repertoire may be an acquired taste but this Brilliant Classics release is a very interesting set through which to explore it.
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Falcioni honors Muffat's expressive contrasts in the toccatas, which build on the 17th Century tradition of dramatically alternating between fugal and figurative sections. Virtuosic passages are performed with brilliance and dramatic energy, lyrical moments are imbued with a gentle expressivity, and contrapuntal sections are evenly and clearly paced.
