Press review

Ein intelligentes Vivaldi-Portrait, das im Dschungel zahlloser Konkurrenzaufnahmen Beachtung verdient.
Gero Schließ, Klassik heute, März 2000

Kuusisto (...) is a soloist pure of tone, lithe of spirit, rich in imagination when it comes to capturing the music's Baroque flavour.
Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph, January 22, 2000, Classical CD of the Week

One of the finest recordings of the 4 Seasons in years (...). This is playing and recording very much in the luxury class. (...) No matter how crowded the catalogue may become, there will always be room for recordings of this quality.

Julian Haylock, Classic CD, December 1999
