International Record Review

June 2012

“there is no hint of unfamiliarity or unease with the distinctive style of French Baroque music. The low pitch gives a wonderfully rich sonority to Barton Pine's violin and Rozendaal's viola da gamba. Both string players display a sure grasp of the rich variety of French ornamentation, in which vibrato is but an occasional device. Pine draws an extraordinary range of textures from her instrument...an inspiring and deeply satisfying recording, which is highly recommended.”
