Robert Maxham
Fanfare, November 2008

Giovanni Guglielmo, noted as a violin soloist on both modern instruments and period ones, produces a rounded tone from his 1712 Bernardus Calcanius violin; it’s nuanced, too, and capable of a wide range of sensibility, as in the first movement of the program’s second Concerto in F Major. The ensemble never sounds either strident or crunchy, though its timbres seem deeply influenced by the native sonorities of the instruments on which they play—and they impart to the fast movements a jaunty rhythmic bounce. …Very strongly recommended as the kind of fresh air so many of us continuously strain to breathe. © 2008 Fanfare Read complete review
