'Some of the most beguiling music he wrote. Mackintosh, on top form, acts her role with the utmost virtuosity, lovely tone, unimpeachable intonation, and fine style. The OAE rise to the occasion, making this splendidly engineered recording one to treasure … a definitive account of Vivaldi's glorious viola d'amore concertos, one to revel in' (Gramophone)
