Millennium of Music, November 2015

…this CD by the viola da gamba player Juliane Laake, which includes several world first recordings, represents a crucially important contribution to the rediscovery of forgotten music as a whole. © 2015 Millennium of Music Read complete review

American Record Guide, September 2015

[Laake] is a fine player with a capacity for liveliness and lyricism. Kai Rooterberg is a fine singer who also masters the variety of moods in this pleasantly varied program.

The recording is nicely balanced and in rich sound. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
