Classics Today


“..this disc will have you cheering. Maurice Steger plays the meanest recorder you will find anywhere, and while music for this instrument isn't usually regarded as the acme of excitement for thrillseekers, Steger and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin deliver blockbuster performances of all three works... Harmonia Mundi's impeccable engineering provides the finishing touch on a disc that must count as one of the most amazing and enjoyable baroque recitals of this or any other year”

International Record Review

“Steger's playing is astonishing, and the generally swift tempos adopted seem merely a spur to inventive phrasing and articulation. Steger is capable of not only lightning passagework but also playing of the utmost delicacy. The ensemble is most definitely on top form, the recording is perfect”

Record Review

24th June 2017

“the more refined inventiveness of the Berlin Akademie offers the best long term prospects … they gauge the imaginary steps of the dances with perfect grace, varying the repeats with fresh instrumental colours and ornamental twists, which beautifully elevate the simple patterns of Telemann’s music … technically thrilling but seldom overstated, it’s an ideally balanced approach.”
