Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Kirchhof is one of the world's leading Baroque lutenists and has been active for nearly four decades. The music here presented would have been typical of what was heard in the royal courts of France or Prussia in the High Baroque. The works are quite charming. The concertos of Gottfried Meusel (1688- 1728) are all world premiere recordings, and they are quite delightful. Imagine the energy and melodic charm of Vivaldi with a German accent, and you'll have these works. They alone are worth the price of the disc. Lutz Kirchhof performs as expected, with a complete grasp of the style, expert ornamentation, and a lovely range of tone and dynamics. Martina is every bit his equal. If you're a fan of the style, get this one.
