(Booklet notes in English and German)
It is all enjoyable music and sounds good on this sweet-toned instrument, whose beauties are well demonstrated. Booth has an easy command of the French ‘notes inégales’ style, which gives the playing a naturalness. Recommended.
Peter Grahame Woolf, Musical Pointers
A player for whom the ‘stylus phantasticus’ holds no fear or caution is Colin Booth… This is gutsy, unfussy, virtuosic playing with both freedom and control, and I found my feet tapping along more than once. Booth’s ability to sustain and project lines brings the music right off the page with an immediacy… compellingly presented.
James Davy, Early Music Today
