Album Review

Piau’s quickness of mind is matched by the orchestral playing of Accademia Bizantina, whose sound, typically for an Italian group, is grainier than The King’s Consort but allows for a more alert and intense approach to interpretative detail. Thus they never fail to enhance the mood of a particular number, a skill which they also put to good use in the disc’s three orchestral works.
