'Graceful in character … melodically appealing. An enjoyable and very worthwhile release, illuminating less familiar aspects of Albinoni's music' (Gramophone)

'The performances are of high quality, well paced, sensitive and fresh, and the recording is well balanced and vivid' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'These discs will be a revelation to those who honor Corelli … here is his compositional successor. Superb notes by Michael Talbot complement this sumptuous set of golden treasures. Warmly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)

'Very attractive music, captivatingly played' (Soundscapes, Australia)

'En definitiva, una version absolutamente indispensable' (CD Compact, Spain)
In final place comes Sonata 12, a work without any special emphases but which encapsulates the qualities of the set as a whole: vitality, neatness and, above all, dignity.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 12, la dernière, est un morceau sans aucune emphase spéciale, mais qui résume les qualités du recueil tout entier: vitalité, finesse et par-dessus tout, dignité.

Am Schluß steht die Sonate 12, ein Werk ohne besondere Schwerpunkte, das jedoch die Qualitäten der Sammlung insgesamt zusammenfaßt: Vitalität, Klarheit und vor allem Würde.
