Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times
Although its title makes it sound like a particularly forbidding PhD thesis, this disc contains a hugely appealing and varied selection of works from the vast northern Italian late-baroque repertoire...All [concertos] are executed with flair and passion by Adrian Chandler and his expert team of period-instrument specialists.

BBC Music Magazine
... a well-chosen programme played with fervour and infectious esprit...

Gramophone Magazine
Chandler lets this music speak for itself in performances which are full of the uncomplicated and natural ebullience we have learnt to expect from his youthful group.
