Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Rachel Podger's Perla Barocca, which features works by ten key composers of the 17th Century, showcases eleven sublime examples of early Italian Baroque chamber music. Some of these composers dominated the repertory; others left behind only a handful of works. Here, they come together to convey the diverse musical landscape at an excitingly rich and creative point in history. Podger is supported by harpsichordist and organist Marcin Swiatkiewicz and Daniele Caminiti on theorbo.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2014
There's the sense of music in possession of a free spirit and keen to test boundaries both expressive and virtuosic...Predictably there's an unfailing eloquence to everything Podger does, whether scampering over the strings with irrepressible insouciance, tracing the airborne curve of a rhetorical flourish, or tucking in a discreet yet telling embellishment.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2014
It would be hard to imagine a more enticing introduction to the delights of 17th-century Italian violin music...Podger and her accompanists enjoy bringing out these pieces' sense of discovery, of excitement and intense feeling, yet without doing violence to the substance of the music.
