Robert Dearling
Hi-Fi News & Record Review, June 2000

"A welcome follow-up to Vol. 1, Concertos 1-6, to which I gave an enthusiastic review [HFN/RR Dec'99]. Many of the same positive qualities are on show here: lively, short-phrased modern-instrument playing in near-period style, with a continuo divided between harpsichord and archlute (plus string bass of course). The continuo players, who are balanced with care to give the right degree of harmonic support, are not named. Neither is the second violinist who contributes to Concerto 11. On the whole, Andrew Watkinson copes well with everything Vivaldi throws at him, adding the occasional decoration... The forward recording has excellent ambience... Those who bought Vol. 1 [8.553323] will certainly need to complete the set with this disc."
