'Auser Musici play quick music with brio, slower movements have a graceful lyrical sweep, and Ipata's flute-playing is always shapely; there's no disputing the easy charm of these skilfully crafted concertos … these finely judged performances of consistently well-wrought compositions offer wider charms' (Gramophone)

'This is very pleasant music with some particularly dreamy slow movements' (Early Music Review)

'This is music of considerable charm … Ipata's virtuosity is, as always, exceptional, and there's fine playing from his own period band, Auser Musici' (The Guardian)

'Utter rarities, delightfully played and immaculately recorded—another triumph for Hyperion and Auser Musici' (International Record Review)
