L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra provides Wallfisch with sympathetic support throughout a disc which augurs well for the remainder of the series. The recorded sound is ideal.
International Record Review 09/2004
These series will be another precious gem in the cpo crown.
Elizabeth Wallfisch and her colleagues have a knack to catch the charm and warmth in Telemann’s music. His eloquence in the different styles of his time is conveyed with incredibly fine nuances […] The L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra accompanies the high spirited soloist with infallible reliability. Wallfisch shows her stand in arpeggios, scales, semiquaver triplets and polyphonic playing.- What a colourful microcosm is presented here to the listener during the first 10 minutes already! […] The following volumes in this project are expected in great anticipation, while enjoying this excellent release in the meantime.
