Notes & Reviews:

"This characteristically imaginative disc from ECM announces its intentions right from the beginning with a snatch from somewhere in the middle of Corelli's 'La follia', quickly followed by a coolly improvised set of variations on that same compelling chord-sequence... The ringing 17th-century sound world of bowed and plucked strings will be familiar to those who know the recordings of continuo-led groups such as The Harp Consort or Stubbs's other group Tragicomedia, but this is a programme driven more by mood and fancy than by desire to make historical points. The result is some soothing music-making - the improvised pieces are gentle and undemanding on the listener - broken up occasionally by the more forcefully active and virtuoso music of the sonatas, which come across in this context as truly Baroque inventions. Valent's playing is a particular joy in the Farina, brilliant and full of agile changeability of character, but then this is a disc full of fine musicianship. The recording is typical for ECM, which is to say richly atmospheric and seductive. A perfect disc for late night and a red wine." -Gramophone
