'The performances by the Locatelli Trio respond with spontaneity and expressive warmth to the wide-ranging effects, sometimes playful, at others sober and idiosyncratic of these fascinating pieces. Violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch articulates Veracini's melodic line with clarity and communicative charm … a welcome return to the catalogue' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This is wonderfully lusty, celestial music, and it is thanks to Wallfisch that we hear both of these seldom associated qualities … this is a great musical treasure at a bargain price. Do not miss it' (Positive Feedback)
