Two great Telemann reviews in from Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine!
BBC gave a double 5-star review, for Performance and Recording!
Robert Smith is not the first in the field with his recording, but the expressive warmth … feeling for rhetoric and accomplished technique deserve to win many friends.
And Lindsay Kemp at Gramophone commented:
Smith navigates Telemann’s fleeting moods with assurance and focus – whether in the concentrated harmonies of a grave slow movement or in the sprightly dancelike release of an allegro finale – and finds tellingly timed rhetorical space between phrases.
