Reviews

‘[Judith Nelson’s] performance of both the cantatas is full of warmth and expression … Christophe Coin gives a many-shaded account of Marais’s ‘La sonnerie … Monica Huggett gives us a really splendid performance [of the Leclair], savouring the harmonies of the double-stopping seemingly without a care in the world.[… Fine playing and a fine, reverberant recording which captures every detail of the instruments’ character, make this a notable release. There is much repertoire here which is, furthermore, new to the catalogue.’ Gramophone
