Notes and Editorial Reviews

“You can gallop away with the Turks, bumping into some unexpected harmonies, and on to the haughty Swiss, or the proud Portuguese. But the most amazing movement is "Muscovites", where basses, lute, cellos and violins chime in imitation of the Kremlin bells.” Rob Cowan, The Independent, 22 March 2002

"The tempi are just, the tuning impeccable, the phrasing graceful." Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday, 24 March 2002

"absolutely stunning." George Pratt, CD Review, BBC Radio 3, 15 June 2002

“their gusto is overwhelming: listening to this CD with a straight face is quite impossible.” Geoff Brown, The Times, 18 June 2002

 Heady performances! August 18, 2014 By H. Ventura (Mililani, HI) See All My Reviews "This two disc set (great value!) presents Telemann on an exalted level. Glorious, festive music from this Baroque master. The musicians have a feeling for Telemann and they play their hearts out. The performances are engaging and spirited. Absolutely astonishing recordings. The in-depth notes add to the wow factor. Essential purchase." Report Abuse
