Reviews

East is throwing light on the missing element in much baroque performance: the performer. Rubato, extreme dynamics, rhythmic variation generate the excitement of spontaneity.

CLASSICAL MUSIC
   ‘Recording of the Fortnight’



Exciting and imaginative ....I particualrly like the ornamental embellishments on the repeats in the Eccles [and] dramatic effects in Vivaldi's Sonata.

THE STRAD
 

Angela East plays with all the verve and technical mastery of one of the world’s finest baroque cellists.

NEW CLASSICS
 

Listening to this CD is like greeting an old friend you haven’t seen for ages. So much is warmly familiar it makes the heart glad and slightly nostalgic. I have never before heard a recording of the de Fesch Sonata in D minor, for instance, which I remember playing in my distant school days. And yet there are embellishments and delicate ornamentation that give an exciting freshness to the interpretation and promise that revisiting these old friends will be very worthwhile as there is more to discover. This CD takes treasured favourites firmly away from being pieces used simply on a learning pathway to over an hour of glorious Baroque played on period instruments.

EUROPEAN STRING TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION MAGAZINE
 

"She brings to these suites and sonatas an uninhibited expressive style and a determination to present the character of each movement in the strongest most searching light.her range of tone is most appealing.she plays with refined elegance.beautifully poised..a memorable recital"

GRAMOPHONE
 

Stylish and inspirational performances by one of the leading players of the day..some lovely ornamentation...I really liked the Vivaldi and the Bach, which just has to be on everyone with a soul's Desert Island Discs list.
