Reviews

‘Performances are excellent … In the Campra the character of the various pieces is precisely caught and conveyed, … an extremely enjoyable record, with impeccable playing from the ECO’ Gramophone

‘Another selection of splendid operatic instrumental pieces by the Italian-born creator of French music … The performances are extremely polished … Leppard, following the rhythmic (and instrumental) conventions of the time, characterizes the music strongly, and rightly makes the most of its variety … The ECO’s playing and the recording alike are first-rate’ Gramophone
