"What ultimately emerges from “About Baroque” is a sense of the old-instrument world as a different kind of compositional resource, not so much a repository either of new sounds or of old resonances but a musical culture of its own. The raw materials here are a peculiarly hyper-responsive kind of ensemble playing and listening, a trained facility in making a score “work” without comprehensive instructions and a shared conviction of the essential physicality of performance. These aren’t qualities confined to early-music players, but they are to be found more often among the best early-music players than just about anywhere else, and their attraction to adventurous composers must be obvious." - Michelle Dulak Thomson, The New York Times,Read more 3,25,2007 Read less
