 Lovely recording July 8, 2014 By S. Levin (New Rochelle, NY) See All My Reviews "Michala Petri is the best. Recorder music doesn't get enough exposure, & this recording helps make up for that & does justice to the art. I only wish that there would have been more on the CD! I'd also love to see a recording of recorder ensemble work." Report Abuse
 Virtuoso Recorder September 17, 2013 By William C. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "What a Joyous CD; creates happiness just listening. Scintillating playing by a virtuoso. I've never heard a recorder played so well, so in-tune, and with such articulation. In addition to fine 17th & 18th century pieces there is a delightful 20th century Concerto. I will be buying other CDs of this artist's work." Report Abuse
