"This superb recording is now my top recommendation for a period-instrument set of this music...In fact, after listening to the set again since writing the previous three sentences, I would say that this is my favorite complete set of these works on either period or modern instruments. This is one of those sets that I can hardly bring myself to remove from my CD player." —American Record Guide

"Matthews is marvelously expressive here... Schenkman plays with the technical dexterity and controlled energy that made his recent Domenico Scarlatti disc so compelling... In a field dominated by Italian musicians, these two young Americans make a powerful statement with this recording." —Craig Zeichner, Early Music America
