Julie Anne Sadie
Gramophone, October 2012

‘This recording is a considerable achievement by any standard. Berger plays cleanly, his warm tone resonantly captured here. His command of divisions and the ornamentation is impressive.’ © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone



John France
MusicWeb International, August 2012

This double-CD is definitely for the dedicated listener…these tunes allow the listener to enter a world of music that appears so far removed from the classical and romantic eras that dominate the musical scene. There is a timelessness about these characteristically sad, melancholic and reflective pieces that defies time itself. I may not relate to this music personally, but I can see why this collection is so important for scholars and enthusiasts. I can understand why it can be a moving experience for listeners who are attuned to the music’s mood. Certainly, Dietmar Berger plays this music with depth and what I take to be a huge understanding of the technical and historic aspects of the genre. I am sure that listeners who specialise in this music will hope that more of the Manchester Gamba Book will be recorded in the coming years. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
