Johan van Veen
musica Dei donum, March 2015

…every single piece in the programme is of excellent quality. L’Accademia Giocosa plays this repertoire brilliantly. The performances are engaging and energetic, with sharp articulations, strong dynamic shading and a convincing choice of tempi.

This is certainly one of the best Telemann discs I have heard recently. © 2015 musica Dei donum Read complete review

Fanfare, March 2015

…if you are collecting the vast oeuvre of this composer, these premiere recordings really should be a part. The playing is quite good and the interpretations give Telemann’s music the life it deserves. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

American Record Guide, March 2015

This is a particularly enjoyable recording of music by Telemann…

Every member of L’Accademia Giocosa is a virtuoso in his own right… If you have tired of the other over-recorded works of Telemann, this is a recording that will reopen your ears. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

MusicWeb International, February 2015

…both scholarship and performance are coming to the realization that there is much to admire and enjoy in the considerable body of Telemann’s work. The present disc is a fine example of such developments. The playing is radiantly vivacious and pretty well every bar is, without any sense of the excessive, richly characterized. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

There is so much here that is an absolute joy to hear that it was difficult to decide on sample tracks. The playing by L’Accademia Giocosa is superb. © 2015 Expedition Audio Read complete review

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, September 2014

This new release feature entertainingly evocative performances in a pleasingly light and clear and refined texture. Obviously, Accademia Giocosa is perfectly at home in this repertoire and has that extra degree of freedom to enjoy themselves. © 2014 Pizzicato
