Reviews

La Nouvelle Rpublique

(...) Et nous sommes dans une disque qui fait revivre une ambiance trs sensuelle, lgre avec un ensemble Florilegium dune grande finesse.

Audio & Techniek

(...) Florilegium is op deze cd geweldig op dreef (...) (...) een verrukkelijke cd, waarop magnifiek gemusiceerd wordt. Bovendien is op de opname, dat zijn we inmiddels wel gewend van Channel Classics, om te zoenen.

Rpertoire: 9 Rpertoire

(...) voil une des plus rjouissantes parutions vivaldiennes des douze derniers mois. (...) (...) Outre la grande qualit des solistes, linterprtation se distingue par une nergie peu commune, (...) (...) Il est rare dentendre des Anglais oser se dvergonder au point de passer pour Italiens (...)

Klassiek

(...) Wie nog steeds gelooft dat alleen Italianen Vivaldi goed kunnen spelen, zullen zich na deze cd gewonnen moeten geven.

Diapason

...) De beaux instruments bien jous, une basse harmonique coulante et prcise, et un climat potique parfois juste un rien gouailleur. (...)

Fono Forum

(...) Mit Liebe zum Detail wird hier jeder Ton ernst genommen und erhlt seine besondere Schattierung. Das Ensemblespiel ist perfekt (...)

Noordhollands Dagblad

(...) De musici van Florilegium weten wel raad met deze uitbundige en kleurrijke muziek (...) (...) De sprankelende ensembleklank van Florilegium, vlekkeloos in beeld gebracht door de heldere opname, vergroot het luistergenot van deze cd in niet geringe mate.

Gramophone

(...) Florilegiums stylish versions will serve both you and the music well.
