Reviews

 

Mackintosh, on top form, acts her role with the utmost virtuosity, lovely tone, unimpeachable intonation, and fine style. The OAE rise to the occasion, making this splendidly engineered recording one to treasure
… a definitive account of Vivaldi’s glorious viola d’amore concertos, one to revel in.

Vivaldi, viola d'amore concertos

Gramophone, OAE / Hyperion

This alert, stylish account of the E major concerto would surely have pleased Bach himself.

The Independent

Mackintosh played the slow movement with such sweet intensity it was a joy to hear.

The Times

A lustrous tone, fleet technique and an unerring way with a melodic line.

Chicago Tribune

Lovely, unaffected performances with a disarming air of spontaneity, yet with a sense that every detail has been shaped with care and understanding

Mozart Duo Sonatas

Gramophone, Chandos / Duo Amadè

The recording acoustic is ideally resonant,
the stero image effective, and details always clear. Recommended with enthusiasm.

Nicholas Anderson, Gramophone

Hyperion / Purcell Quartet
