Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The four works on this disc are elegant and opulent miniatures. The scoring varies from movement to movement, but generally, it is one of the melody instruments with continuo. Many of these performers are now acknowledged masters of early music instruments and styles. Few others can manage the beauty, grace, shape and proportion heard here. After nearly a generation the sound remains warm, mellow, and serene - never insistent." -Carter, ARG
