Reviews

'In every way this disc is superior to any Tartini recording I've ever heard: the soloist is in breathtaking form … in the quiet repose sometimes offered by the slow movements she and her wonderful continuo team are as eloquent as can be. One of my favourite discs this month' (Early Music Review)

'Both the music and performances on this disc will stimulate anyone with more than a passing interest in violin music and its performance' (The Irish Times)

'The soloist, Elizabeth Wallfisch, strikes a balance between ebullience and refinement. She makes a sweet sound' (The Evening Standard)

'Wallfisch endows the music with the virtuosity and quasi-improvisatory immediacy that is the essence of this tradition … plenty of pizzazz … these concertos never fail to captivate' (San Francisco Chronicle)
