Lark Reviews, April 2017

At first glance this recording seems an unnecessary volume in a series dedicated to the works of a single composer. However, on reading the notes and listening to the music I have come to see how important this volume is! Bossi championed the music of many of these ‘Old Masters’ and by doing so breathed new life into them, cherishing the musical structures and ideas from past generations but not being afraid to develop them further and incorporate his own ideas alongside them. The CD is an enjoyable listening experience in its own right but the value lies more in helping others to appreciate how composers draw on the legacy left before them. © 2017 Lark Reviews

Records International, April 2017

Two hours of evidence of Bossi’s efforts toward the rediscovery of the old Italian music school, beacon to the European culture from the Renaissance onwards. In this sense, these “transcriptions of the old masters” revisited by Bossi and adapted to instruments of his time, mark the return to the study of the Italian school of music, making it an integral part and foundation of the modern school. © 2017 Records International
