'[...] elegant, measured readings'

- Early Music Review

'[...] both artists deliver fine performances of this music which is indeed "agreeable to the ear". This is music which is fit for repeated listening, also thanks to the artists and their refined playing, in the manner of an elegant conversation.'
MusicWeb International

'[...] elegant, measured readings'
Early Music Review

'Their attractive playing is entirely appropriate to the elements of sensitivity that the Galant style demands.'
andrewbensonwilson.org

'It is as if the musicians are playing just for us – which is probably what Telemann intended. It is entirely convincing.'
Lark Reviews
