"You can't beat Andrew Manze when it comes to fiery, inspired violin playing." The Independent

On the Corelli:
"Manze and Egarr improvise ornaments and cadenzas spontaneously. Technically the recording is spacious, and carefully timed atmospheric silences between movements add to the drama. The result is a complete reappraisal of this seminal collection. Quite simply - outstanding."
***** Five Stars (Pick of the Month) BBC Music Magazine (Feb 03)

On the Rebel:
These are highly personal performances in any case; probably only Manze would (or perhaps could) play them this way... Combined with the sympathetic contributions of Richard Egarr and Jaap ter Linden, this is baroque chamber music-making of the highest order."
- Gramophone Magazine

On the Vivaldi:
"This is a delightful, well-conceived programme, executed with refinement of taste and technique." Gramophone
