Reviews:

“There is a real physicality to this ensemble’s recorded performance, one that made me want to see them perform live…this is a terrific disc.”
Early Music

“Breakthrough of the Year could wind up going to Quicksilver’s breathtaking recital of the 17th century string music repertoire known as Stile Moderno. Written by increasingly less obscure composers…this music for strings, sackbut, lute and other plucked things ranges from ‘strange and extravagant trio sonatas to the spectacle ensemble music of the High Baroque,’ Quicksilver is pretty spectacular itself….Parents, it’s more okay than ever to raise your children to play the dulcian and theorbo.”
