about this recording:
Very often Austria is called the land of music. Usually one would think of the masters of the Viennese classic period whose heritage remained alive in Austria up to the 19th century. Indeed the fact is easily overlooked that Vienna as the capital of a widespread state entity had been an important musical center in the decades before the classical period. The Innsbruck ensemble "Affetti Musicali" plays here with audible pleasure familiar and less known charming works of old Austrian music.

“... a cleverly compiled and well-played CD with the ensemble "Affetti Musicali" which manages the extreme demands to their virtuos abilities ... as well as the difficult questions of tempo in cyclic works..." (Österreichische Musikzeitschrift 2/94)
