"...Three Russians and a German—Barakhovsky, Zemtsov, Nebolsin, and Schmidt—contributed to these fine performances. …they perform these works with all the freshness and passion of a new love or a new discovery."

"...The four players here have been active over much of Western Europe, but all have had some Russian training. Their Brahms is rich and expressive, unmannered and technically secure. Tempos are in the conventional range with no attempts at showiness or virtuosity. All four are terrific players, but I was most taken with pianist Nebolsin, who plays with subtle grace and admirable clarity. A fine job all around."

"If one is to listen to any of CPE Bach's later Keyboard Sonatas on the organ one could not do better than hear this fine disc, played by one of the most admirable British organists of his generation. The organ used, by Paul Fritts (2000), could hardly be improved upon for tonal-colouration, speaking clarity, and timbral suitability for this music, and the Chapel's acoustic is a model of clarity ... one must commend Dr Quinn's command of this music; his virtuosity - which is considerable - is invariably put at the service of the music, and of its expressive nature... A most successful and in its way highly significant issue."  *****

Robert Matthew-Walker - The Organ - Winter 2017
"... performed by Erik Simmons on the fine late baroque organ in St Peter & St Paul, Weissenau. The CD is made up of a large number of short pieces, many of which were written in memory of friends or to commemorate specific individuals. As such the whole has a highly reflective character which is none the worse for that... Many of these pieces would sit comfortably within either a liturgical or concert format..."  *****

"... I found the blend of works appropriate, and all the compositions and arrangements of quality... The production quality of the recording is clear, and the interpretation and performances realised by Michael Fowles are both musically and technically outstanding throughout. In my view, this disc is a serious musical offering that has lasting quality and should be inclused in the libraries of all followers of brass band music."

"Jakob Lindberg has well and truly earned his reputation as one of the top lute players in the world. In this fine recital, he performs the music of Francesco da Milano, Marco dall’Aquila and Alberto da Mantova... A lovely homage to the great lute masters of the past." ****
