Praise for LABP

". . . the Los Angeles Baroque Players. . . rejoice in every nuance of expression with perfectly matched energy and elegance.

. . .possess a genuine sentiment and a total identification with the idiom which even surpasses the informed and stylish readings one expects.

The trasparent, well-balanced sound reveals the vibrancy of the instruments and the purity of the intonation with immediate impact."

--Andrew Willis
Assistant Professor Music
University of North Carolina, Greensboro, NC

". . . very enjoyable listening. I especially enjoyed the excellent transcription by Wm Neil Roberts of the Bach Organ Trio Sonata. . .

. . . the flute playing of Anthony Brazier is eloquenty beautiful."

-- Allan Vogel
Principal oboe, Los Angees Chamber Orchestra
Music Faculty of the Caifornia Institute for the Arts (Cal-Arts)

"The Los Angeles Baroque Players demonstrate elegance, taste, and refinement in this new issue of high-baroque music for chamber ensemble. In particular, the arrangement by harpsichordist, Wm Neil Roberts of one of Bach's organ trio sonatas exempifies the sort of conversational repartee of the wittiest salons of the time, a thing sorely lacking in most organ performances of this repertoire.
Intonation, ensembe, rhythmic sense are throughout on the highest level.
A delightful recording!"

-- Peter Sykes
