Ciconia Consort

"The Ciconia Consort and Dick van Gasteren show an authenticity that feels totally at the service of the music. Its impressive unity and full string tone provide an ideal foundation for the alliance between attention to form and appreciation for the coloration of the writing. Compelling from start to finish!"

"... Lovely sound, beautifully played. There is a lot of definition and finesse to it. Very expressive in the lyrical moments"
