Notes & Reviews:

The dynamic young chamber group Apollo & Pan was formed in 1993 by Tassilo Erhardt, Sally Holman and Steven Devine and features the combination of violin, bassoon and keyboard. The group won the International Early Music Network Young Artists' Competition in 2001. On this recording Apollo & Pan performs works by Castello, Merula, Marini, Bertoli, Frescobaldi, Rossi and Turini. The group regularly performs at regional music festivals as well as at the South Bank Early Music Festival and the York Early Music Festival.

BBC Music Magazine
Five Sonatas from 1629 by Dario Castello, some not otherwise recorded, provide the core to their programme. They alternate between three equal parts, with two violins duetting above bass, and passages highlighting the delightful buzz of the dulcian. Ensemble here, as throughout, is very taut, even when pathos demands a flexing tempo.

Gramophone Magazine
The performances revel in their distinctive sound world, making much of the music's textural oppositions without straying into mannerism. The wispy-toned Renaissance violins are not always spot-on with tuning, but Sally Holman's dulcian is a reliable and forthright pleasure.
