Profeti della Quinta - Salomone Rossi: Il Mantovano Hebreo - Gramophone


15 March 2014
Gramophone

...the group as a whole perform with a secure sense of direction and a feel for the music, and are confident enough to add occasional discreet ornamentation. The instrumental playing is also excellent. Definitely an ensemble to look out for.
