“I cannot stop listening to this recital of northern European chamber music.
Everything about this disc is commendable, including the excellent program
notes written by harpsichordist Rebecca Pechefsky. The playing is fantastic—
sensitive, well shaped, and engaging. You can definitely tell the musicians are
having a great deal of fun, even while playing some of the rather serious
music on this disc. Flutist Andrew Bolotowsky has thousands of performances
to his credit and seems to enjoy a following in the New York area. I think he
deserves international attention. The other members of this ensemble are
equal partners. A must buy.”
—Christopher L. Chaffee,
American Record Guide

“This debut recording by Brooklyn Baroque presents a varied and generous
selection of mostly unfamiliar music by German composers of the 18th
century. If features one gem that, by itself, justifies interest in this disc: the
Solo in D Major for Cello and Continuo by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–
1712)—which is, in fact, a four-movement sonata in the
da chiesa form of
alternating fast and slow sections. Cellist David Bakamjian resounds
beautifully to the expressiveness of Telemann’s music, providing an elegant,
fluid, and richly resonant performance ... In this music of a later generation of
German composers, flutist Adrew Bolotowsky earns high marks for his lively,
supple, and clear-toned musicality, as does the trio as a whole for its unified
ensemble playing and its energetic engagement.”
—Jen-yen Chen,

Brooklyn Baroque in its debut recording offers a program of chamber works
