What people are saying

Gramophone Award Short-listed, Best Baroque Instrumental Recording 2012

“North’s articulation and timing are faultless, with fleet-footed bourres and courantes of reckless perfection. But it is the sheer beauty of sound that is most remarkable: clear, luxuriant, expansive.” The Independent
