REVIEWS
"This is an outstanding release. All of the pieces on this recital are of the highest calibre, and quite enjoyable to hear...The Hanoverian Ensemble plays this music... with elegance, grace, and precision. Flutists John Solum and Richard Wyton deserve high praise for their beautiful phrasing and polished style. I cannot stop listening to this. Anyone who appreciates elegant music played with great dignity and remarkable attention to detail should buy this."
American Record Guide, September/October 2005
"The Hanoverian Ensemble provide benchmark interpretations...each work glows with tonal beauty as well as an innate feeling for the music...a historically informed set of readings that will please the most selective of listeners, even those who are not firmly in the period-instruments camp."
Fanfare, June/July 2004
"In every work, the Hanoverian players are cohesive partners whose vibrant period-instrument skills animate the music's vivacious and lyrical aspects. John Solum and Richard Wyton meet the challenges of the flute parts with woodsy grace, and they collaborate nimbly with cellist Arthur Fiacco and violist Monica Gerard".
Gramophone, March 2004
PROGRAM NOTES
This recording consists of a selection of classical chamber music associated with Lord Abingdon and his circle. Willoughby Bertie (1740-1799), the 4th Earl of Abingdon, was an English aristocrat who was an enthusiastic amateur flutist and composer. In his colorful life (which included politics), he met and befriended many important composers of the day, and commissioned musical works (or was the dedicatee of works) by many of them. Of these composers, this recording features notable works by Joseph Haydn, Johann Christian Bach, Carl Friederich Abel, and the Andre Gretry.

THE HANOVERIAN ENSEMBLE is a group of distinguished musicians who specialize in historical performance on period instruments. The repertoire features the great music of the Baroque and Classical eras, performed with an expertise garnered from many decades of concert and recording experience. Programs involve from four to ten players, depending upon the repertoire. The ensemble’s name evokes the time of the Hanoverian kings of England.
