About

Recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger, with The English Concert led by Laurence Cummings, performs a dazzling programme of concertos fashioned by the English adherents of Arcangelo Corelli from the Italian master’s visionary Violin Sonatas Op.5.

"Steger's performance is a thrilling hybrid, dazzlingly embellished yet pure and true of tone. The English Concert match Steger's élan, with glorious solos from the ensemble." - Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday, 11 April 2010 Outstanding

"Steger’s playing is unfailingly seductive; the English Concert under Cummings is equally delectable." - Stephen Pettitt, Sunday Times, 18 April 2010

There is some super playing from The English Concert and Maurice Steger’s recorder playing is truly exceptional. This recording passes my ultimate test as a reviewer: it’s prompted me to buy a second copy to give as a present to a friend.” - Mark Argent, Early Music Today, June/August 2010 *****

Steger’s skill is astounding” - Rick Jones, Classic FM Magazine, July 2010

"Steger is on stunning form on this endlessly fascinating recital … An astonishingly gifted musician, who produces a range of colours and sonorities from his recorders that few others can match. … Nominating a disc for the IRR Outstanding accolade is a serious business. It should not be done on a whim. So it is embarrassing to admit that by about 30 seconds into the first track of this recording my decision was as good as made." - Andrew O’Connor, IRR Outstanding, International Record Review, June 2010
