'The performances are a delight. What with Carlo Ipata's liquid tone and secure virtuosity, and the brightness, nimbleness and transparency of the one-to-a-part strings of Auser Musici (excellently captured by the recording), this unassuming but sunny and attractive music has surely achieved its finest hour' (Gramophone)
'Ipata's playing is impeccable in both technique and style … many a period-instrument musician could learn from studying this example. The members of Auser Musici, on this occasion a tiny string band, play their period instruments with Mediterranean sparkle and wit, with some occasional delightful flourishes for solo violin and cello. What a lovely disc this is' (International Record Review)
