[bquote author=”Victor Kioulaphides” source=”Composer, Oct 2011″ link=”http://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/showthread.php?78325-Praeludium”]This recording has SO many things to like that I must cherry-pick a couple of them…. My heart was warmed by the performance from Bach’s Partita BWV 1004. Chris’ playing is uniformly excellent and, somewhere “backstage”, I could hear Ali humming along…In this, and in ALL works performed on this CD, there is artistry of the highest caliber, and mandolin-playing of the highest order.[/bquote]
