The lines are sharply etched, the balances superb, the pacing supple. In sum, here is an excellent CD of fine Baroque chamber music played in the authentic style. S.L., Stereo-Review 10/1987
Vivaldians and original-instrument buffs will surely want this disc, and it is highly recommended. The sound is excellent. Nils Anderson, Fanfare May-Jun 1990

Karl Kaisers performs magic effects in Vivaldi´s "La Notte". Using wonderful mellowness Hans - Peter Westermann makes a big affair of the slow movement of A.Marcello´s concert for oboe, and the continuo group is, again, a model of animation and circumspection.Matthias Hengelbrock, Alte Musik Aktuell 3/1992
