Reviews for Ballo Baroque

Review from Ballo’s concert at the Goettingen Historical Music Series in Germany: They play largely as a sonic unit: they pulsate together in the music, seemingly permeated by one common breath…  Scotting thrilled with the catchy ‘Fammi combattere’ from ‘Orlando’ and was touching with a serious aria from ‘Rodelinda’…  The violinists have their big show with two demanding trio sonatas by violin virtuoso Arcangelo Corelli…

Review from a concert at the London Handel House Museum: I found myself riveted.  Part of the reason for this was Scotting’s gorgeous low notes… but I was also caught by his grasp of the aria’s emotion.  He sang lightly and clearly, but with heart-rending feeling…  Marie van Rhijn played with poise, crispness and grace.  Her skill was most evident during her rendition of an improvised harp solo
