American Record Guide
This is one of the finest DSD recordings I have heard. The recording is gorgeous, giving finely balanced and well-placed performances of these works and also having very well written — and detailed — notes. Anyone with an interest in off the beaten track late 18th Century music owes it to himself to obtain this album.
