Notes & Reviews:

This specially-priced reissue of one of the label's finest recordings is packaged with a complete 2015 harmonia mundi catalog. Recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger, together with The English Concert led by Laurence Cummings, performs a dazzling selection of concertos and other works fashioned from Corelli's visionary Opus 5 Violin Sonatas, penned by Francesco Geminiani and other admirers. These arrangements and other re-workings of Corelli's compositions often feature spectacular ornamentation.

Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday
Steger's performance is a thrilling hybrid, dazzlingly embellished yet pure and true of tone. The English Concert match Steger's Tlan, with glorious solos from the ensemble.

Stephen Pettitt, Sunday Times
Steger's playing is unfailingly seductive; the English Concert under Cummings is equally delectable.

Mark Argent, Early Music Today
There is some super playing from The English Concert and Maurice Steger's recorder playing is truly exceptional. This recording passes my ultimate test as a reviewer: it's prompted me to buy a second copy to give as a present to a friend.

Andrew O'Connor, International Record Review
Steger is on stunning form on this endlessly fascinating recital ... An astonishingly gifted musician, who produces a range of colours and sonorities from his recorders that few others can match. ... Nominating a disc for the IRR Outstanding accolade is a serious business. It should not be done on a whim. So it is embarrassing to admit that by about 30 seconds into the first track of this recording my decision was as good as made.
