Notes and Editorial Reviews



Ten out of ten for eight out of twelve of Vivaldi's scintillating Estro armonico concertos

Tafelmusik Baroque and guest artist Elizabeth Wallfisch have all the energy one has come to expect in top-notch Vivaldi, but also real warmth to their playing. Also a delightful relaxed quality. The music is never rushed, though there’s no lack of propulsion. They all just seem to be taking the time to relish the experience.
-- Gramophone [2/2008]

"The performances are scintillating, dynamic, articulate, and vibrant, the virtuoso violin solos by Elizabeth Wallfisch occupying a playfully precarious edge between daring excitement and
Read more temporal excess--a stance joined in equal measure by her fellow soloists and her very fine orchestral partners. This is Vivaldi performance uninhibited by self-conscious stylistic gestures or distracting "period" mannerisms--it's just informed, virtuosic ensemble playing"
--David Vernier, ClassicsToday.com

"Tafelmusik’s 13 strings, impeccably in tune, create a taut ensemble while slow movements are treated to beautifully expressive playing. Recording, in a warmly resonant Toronto church, is excellent with the stereo spectrum aptly wide for the dialogue between soloists."
