"This is music-making to cherish.” - Gramophone Magazine, September 2010
"Azzolini burbles and rasps away merrily, yet there's poetry aplenty in slow movements, where he displays an unsurpassed palette of tonal colour...[I] cannot imagine these concertos better played, with such infectious exuberance.” - International Record Review, January 2012
"Has anyone ever grabbed hold of this music so wholeheartedly?” - Gramophone Magazine, March 2012
Gramophone Editor's Choice - April 2013
“the utter master of the instrument, and surmounts the technical difficulties works such as the present six concertos pose to lesser mortals with enviable ease … all lovers of Baroque music will enjoy this.” - Early Music Review, February 2013
“Azzolini is one of the most brilliant players of the baroque bassoon these days...it is not just his virtuosity which is impressive. In the slow movements he shows his capabilities in the realm of expression. The ensemble L'Aura Soave Cremona operates on the same wavelength.” - MusicWeb International, 24th July 2013
