Warm en stoer samenklank; afwerking van versieringen en slotharmonieën; frasering en timing,het op en afbouwen van dynamische lijnen, het gebeurt supermuzikaal en minutieus op elkaar afgestemd.” L. van der Spek in Leidsch Dagblad (NL), 7.2.2002 “Lo Zefiro è stato dorato, straordinariamente gradevole e singolarmente carezzevole.” A.Galazzo, in Il Biellese (I), 22.8.2002 Recordings: Jan Dismas Zelenka: complete sonatas; 2 CDs, Astrée-Auvidis E 8511 and E 8563
