Reviews

‘amongst the finest contributions to the regrettably slender Tartini discography … Good recorded sound; strongly recommended’ (Concertos, D. 96, 117, 78) Gramophone

‘Accardo and the English Chamber Orchestra state [Tartini’s] case with both eloquence and elegance. There has always been a certain lyricism in Tartini’s music, but here it is underscored with a telling beauty that brings these works into relief. The performances are superb’ (Concertos, D.56 & 83) Fanfare
