Notes & Reviews:

"Recommended with enthusiasm." - Gramophone

'I can hardly speak too highly of these performers. Best of the Month' (Hi Fi News)

'Recommended with enthusiasm' (Gramophone)

'Vivaldi is just as convincing in his chamber music as in his concertos. With performances that are consistently vital and fresh, this beautifully chosen programme is an absolute delight from start to finish' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This re-release includes three trio sonatas (including a thrilling account of La Folia... the music-making is of the very highest order' (Early Music Review)

'Praised by all reviewers on its first appearance, this re-release on Hyperion's Helios label should be snapped up. Catherine Mackintosh gives two of Vivaldi's sonatas in as fine style as any baroque violinist can bring to them, and is joined by her equally famous and frequent colleague Elizabeth Wallfisch duetting in the so called "trio sonatas", including a sparkling la Folia, in which Robert Wooley's keyboard accompaniment is varied with chamber organ' (Musical Pointers)
