Notes & Reviews:

C.P.E. Bach's two surviving oboe concertos both began as keyboard concertos that were later transcribed for oboe; their intended performer was probably a virtuoso. This would perhaps account for their technical and immensely challenging solo lines, which suggest that he reveled in pushing instruments and performers to their limits. This new recording features music of beauty and chromatic melancholy that is profoundly moving.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Anna Starr and her Musica Poetica colleagues bring a great deal of inspiration to their performances. Their blend is well-crafted and refined, save a few moments when the strings might do better to play more in tune with each other. Sometimes their sound is quite robust, and I forget that they are playing period instruments.
