Notes & Reviews:

Fasch Orchestral Works, Vol. 3 is the third and concluding volume in Tempesta di Mare's series of orchestral works by Johann Friedrich Fasch, a contemporary of J.S. Bach and Telemann. In his day, the works of Fasch (cantatas, concertos, symphonies, and chamber music) were performed extensively across the German-speaking world. J.S. Bach, who arranged at least one of his trio sonatas for organ, held Fasch in great esteem. Tempesta di Mare, Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra, performs the music on baroque instruments with 'zest and virtuosity that transcends style and instrumentation'.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
A splendid collection of overtures and concertos by this unjustly neglected composer. Sparkling strings, punchy horns. With four premiere recordings, this is essential listening.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
There are plenty of surprising twists and inventions in deceptively clever slow movements and personable quick movements.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The playing on this recording is very professional. The articulation is crisp; and the overall momentum, particularly in the overtures, is brisk and engaging - just the right thing for this repertory. Gwyn Roberts's recorder playing in the concerto is very sensitive, especially in the Largo, and magnificently virtuosic in the fast movements. Stone's lute playing is very fine. The Andante of the lute concerto is particularly expressive. Barbara M Reul's notes are excellent, offering both background information and brief analyses of the works.
