Notes & Reviews:

The European Union Baroque Orchestra is a training initiative of the European Union which allows young performers of baroque music from all over the EU to gain orchestral experience as part of their career development from conservatoire study into a professional career

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Danish harpsichordist Mortensen is, of course, an established and greatly respected musician, as both soloist and as director of ensembles. His involvement means that the participants each year learn a lot and perform up to serious standards. The ensemble playing is world class, and the sound is state of the art. Devotees of various early-music ensembles will find it interesting to learn about this group. One point of value here. That is the work of the Swedish soprano Keohane. With a really beautiful voice, she deals with the three vocal items with absolute precision stylistic sensibility, and great emotional power. Keohane brings these scores to life with splendid expressiveness. And the Italian aria is a thing of transcendent beauty - an example of the quintessential Handel largo.
