Johan van Veen
MusicWeb International, July 2016

A very nice performance it is. The tempi are well chosen, without exaggerations, but also without being too slow, which was often the case in recordings of English ensembles of some decades ago. Those were my first acquaintances with these concertos but nowadays Italian ensembles have shown that they are more than nice fillers in a programme of solo concertos. They can perfectly stand on their own feet and in this recording the polyphonic, theatrical and expressive qualities of these pieces are brought to light. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

American Record Guide, July 2016

The playing is exceptionally robust and energetic and is aided by sound of analytic clarity and vivid directionality.

This strikes me as the most attractive and effective program of these Vivaldi miniatures I have yet encountered. Whether you listen selectively or just take it all on at once, it is irresistible. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
