Catherine Moore
American Record Guide, September 2018

There’s a nice variety and precision in the playing which ranges from ringing top notes (as in ‘Corrente XX’) to an attractive wistfulness in delicate chromatic lines (‘Toccata VI’). Sometimes there’s a certain “bounce” sound that might be the result of microphone placement. © 2018 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

William Yeoman
Gramophone, August 2018

A keen continuo player and chamber musician, lutenist Axel Wolf’s previous recordings include music by JS Bach, Handel, Hasse and SL Weiss. Here he turns his attention to the music of a lutenist/composer of a former generation, Michelagnolo (or Michelangelo) Galilei (1575–1631)…

Wolf also enjoys jazz improvisation and he brings some of his improvisatory flair to the toccatas, which invariably begin with an arpeggiated flourish before unfolding in expressive waves rippling with trills and studded with crunchy dissonances. © 2018 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
