Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Performed here by The Purcell Quartet, the Trio Sonatas for violin, viola da gamba, and harpsichord, Op. 2 are remarkable examples of Buxtehude's beautiful chamber music. Inventive and full of life, the sonatas are all different one from another, their contents ranging from dance-like movements and little fugues to sets of variations featuring dynamic duets, as well as slow and airy pieces.

Gramophone Magazine
These sonatas have their own sense of poise and are ever likeable. As before, the violinists of the Purcell Quartet share the workload... Of the two, Mackintosh is the lighter in tone, wispier and ever so slightly astringent next to Weiss’s firmer and more nutty sound. All four musicians...reveal their experience and expertise as interpreters, particularly of this kind of German repertoire, which they have been championing for some time now; less flamboyant or fatly comfortable of sound than Koopman's group, they can nevertheless pace the music's stops and starts perfectly.

Early Music Review - April 2012
...This is marvelous music and these are wonderful musicians ... there is no question of the disc being anything but delightful.

International Record Review - March 2012
... The instrumental textures are rich and very appealing. Weiss's violin playing has a delicious texture that one could almost call 'chewy'. She also seems to capture the sense of fantasy and invention...
