'An excellent disc' (Gramophone)

'Very engaging sonatas performed stylishly and with lively spirit by Convivium … well worth exploring' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Unashamedly fine performances. The recorded sound and balance is masterful, and I can happily recommend this to Handelians (even if the music is by someone else) and chamber music fans alike. It's a real pleasure' (Early Music Review)

'Attractive and well-written works, definitely worth recording … the performances are vivacious and stylish. Hyperion's recording is excellent, and this fascinating disc should appeal to anyone with a taste for the byways of the Baroque' (International Record Review)

'Decidedly convivial Handel from Convivium' (Classic CD)

'Performed with style and an engagingly playful spirit by Convivium … oboist Anthony Robson and violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch are exquisite soloists' (Classic FM Magazine)
