About

“there's a strutting quality behind Midori Seiler’s direction of the strumming opening of Vivaldi’s Concerto in G minor, RV156, that sets the feelgood atmosphere for the disc as a whole. The other works are all directed by Georg Kallweit, whose almost giddy solo playing in the finale of the Violin Concerto in E, RV265, is in the same spirit of extravagance. The actual double concertos here are for two oboes (RV535, Xenia Löffler, Michael Bosch), two cellos (RV531, Jan Freiheit, Werner Matzke), and two violins (RV522, Kallweit, Seiler), all delivered with enough spring and sensitivity to leave one with a lasting smile.” - The Irish Times, 12 October 2007

“Top notch.”
- Rick Jones, Classic FM Magazine, November 2007

“simple excellence leading to simple enjoyment, and a composer’s unique creative spark vividly expressed.” - Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone, November 2007
