#1 UK Specialist Classical Chart 

Netherlands Radio 4 'CD of the Week'

5 stars 'There are so many things to marvel at: her husky, shapely tone, her earthy way with rhythm, how she tugs playfully the top of phrases, her ability to dart in and out of ensemble textures and make the whole thing so joyously convivial.' The Guardian

5 stars 'This is a fabulous recording of some of my favourite music; I have yet to hear a recording by John Butt that is not utterly convincing; with his Dunedins, he has struck gold once again – this goes straight to the top of my pile for rainy days when I need cheering up!' Early Music Review

Album of the Week: '...this highly anticipated new recording is certain to please fans, and create new ones. Bernardini...deliver[s] stellar performances that draw out all the lyricism, wit and exuberance of Bach's writing.' Classic FM

 

Dunedin Consort's formidable reputation for performing Bach is set to scale new heights with this highly anticipated recording.  

Opening the program is the colourful and joyful concerto for violin and oboe (Alfredo Bernardini, oboe) with its supremely lyrical central movement. Two of Bach's solo violin concertos, each overflowing with inventive detail, and the Sinfonia with solo oboe that opens Cantata 21, follow.

The program culminates in one of Bach's greatest masterpieces: the Double Concerto for two violins (Huw Daniel, violin), with its famous and sublime slow movement. Although Bach was most famous as an organist and keyboard player, he was also a fine violinist; his idiomatic writing and characteristic flair is evident in the many dazzling moments he creates.

BBC Music Magazine
4 Stars
'Violinist Cecilia Bernardini's bowing is both fluid and crisply detailed in the opening and closing movements of the E major Concerto (BWV 1042). The outer movements of the A minor Concerto (BWV 1041) benefit from her precision and clarity, with intelligent use of dynamics and an ear for the expressive potential of repetition and variation.'

The Herald Scotland
Interview with Cecilia: '...superb new Dunedin recording of Bach's violin concertos released last week on Linn Records. Her playing is warm and original, lightly virtuosity and deeply musical, healthily eccentric. She digs into her fiddle with an earthy, organic sort of lyricism and a playful conversational spark that has bags of charisma...'

Classic FM
Album of the Week: 'Two of Bach's solo violin concertos, overflow with intricate and pin sharp detail and the famous, sublime slow movement of Bach's Double Concerto has never been more heartrending.'
more >>

BBC Radio 3 ‘Record Review’
'This recording has elegance at its heart with Bernardini showing a nice feel for the dynamic contrasts and varied repetitions in the A minor and E major concertos. Two of the highlights are when she is joined by her father, the baroque oboist Alfredo Bernardini, for the C minor Concerto for violin and oboe, and as an extra treat the Sinfonia from Bach’s Cantata No. 21.’
