'Rostropovich does have the true measure of these works and plays to an appropriate scale with a beauty of tone unimaginable from a period instrument. His eloquence has a style of its own, beyond the usual constraints of period and convention. The lyrical slow movements are imbued with a wistfulness and intimacy reflecting a well-known side of his musical personality; the brooding rhetorical quality of the C.P.E. Bach Adagio is especially compelling' Gramophone on Vivaldi & CPE Bach
