Fanfare, January 2015

…I find this endeavor to be remarkably successful. Goebel is in top form here… The instrumental balances are ideal, bringing out additional color from subsidiary parts, while textures and articulation are as crisp, fresh, and flavorful as a newly plucked apple from a country orchard. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

MusicWeb International, March 2014

This is a very nice set of Mozart’s six Violin Concertos, performed with an ‘authentic’ vibe as you would expect as conducted by someone such as Reinhard Goebel, with harpsichord continuo crispening up the rhythms and harmonies, and a clean, transparent lightness of sound from the Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie. Mirjam Contzen’s violin tone suits this backing very well…

…this is a highly attractive set of the Mozart Violin Concertos in today’s light chamber-music style but with the sonorities of modern instruments. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
