Notes & Reviews:

Alexander Woods is a core member of the lauded early music group The Sebastians, winners of the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition "Audience Prize" award. Acclaimed for "... showstopping accounts... " and "... deft, sensitive... " musicianship (New York Times) as well as "a reassuring sense of relaxed command" (Seen and Heard International), Alexander Woods is joined by internationally recognized harpsichordist Avi Stein and baroque 'cellist Ezra Seltzer for this debut CD exploring the influence of Arcangelo Corelli's timeless music. Featuring several dynamic and varied world premier recordings by baroque composers Antonio Montanari, Evaristo Felice Dall'Abaco, and Henricus Albicastro, as well as established works by Arcangelo Corelli, and Pietro Castrucci, this recording highlights how these composers shine within the framework and architecture of Corelli's sound world.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The musicians - Alexander Woods, violin; Ezra Seltzer, cello, and Avi Stein, harpsichord - are very good; and Woods has a bit more character than most baroque violin soloists. Good sound.
