…the performances are a mixture of styles (traditional Turkish and classical) and timbres (especially prominent is the Turkish kanun, a zither-like instrument).

…the melody of Sartorio’s ‘Ogni bella’ sounds perfectly natural when played as a prelude in a Turkish manner. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

This is boisterous fare, baroque music with lots of drums. The impact is earthy, and sometimes a little coarse, but fun. The musicians are all highly skilled, producing effects that are sometimes arresting, and often intellectually stimulating. The disc offers a thoughtful contrast to more rarified and effete approaches to baroque performance. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
