Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Béla Drahos is an excellent soloist on Naxos, and he phrases very musically: the Siciliana slow movement of Il gardellino is beautifully played. He gets lively support from the Nicolaus Esterházy Sinfonia, who are also suitably gentle and evocative in the dream world of La notte. The C minor Concerto makes a welcome bonus, for in the finale the Goldfinch of Il gardellinno appears to have flown back in through the window.

Review By Nicholas Anderson,Classic FM,May 2000

Bargain of the Month

“Collectors who like Vivaldi but are tired of The Four Seasons will be delighted with this second volume in Naxos’s series of Vivaldi’s Flute Concertos. Five pounds will buy these lovely performances by Hungarian flautist Bála Drahos and the Budapest-based Nicolaus Esterházy Sinfonia; highlights are La tempesta di mare (The Storm at Sea)-also known as a violin work-and Il gardellino (The Goldfinch).”
