5 stars ‘...the disc, with its endless stream of stylish and imaginative performance strokes, is absolutely convincing.' The Herald

‘McGillivray is an imaginative and stylish interpreter of Geminiani's six cello sonatas.' The Strad

‘Her warm, rich sound has a sunny autumnal maturity...' The Daily Telegraph

‘Alison and her trio of co-conspirators have that something special in buckets.' Early Music Review

‘This is high quality playing and production of rarely heard music and it would be well worth seeking out.' MusicWeb International

 

Geminiani's Op. 5 mark the beginning of the change from gamba to cello. They are an intriguing and delicately balanced fusion of Italianate clarity and counterpoint and French lavishness of sonority and gesture. In the Op. 5 Cello Sonatas Geminiani succeeded in creating music that lives up to his own high expectations. In addition McGillivray and guests (cembalist David McGuinness, continuo cellist Joseph Crouch and Baroque guitarist Eligio Quinteiro) perform some interesting and valuable bonuses taken from Geminiani's keyboard compositions. The Financial Times named McGillivray's eloquent Geminiani recording one of the 'Best Classical Recordings of 2005' for its 'scholarship and style'.
