Early Music Reviews give the album 5/5 stars, and write:


"There are many recordings of Vivaldi’s recorder concertos but this is certainly one that stands out, not just for Dan Laurin’s exciting and seemingly effortless recorder playing and his wonderfully imaginative ornamentation of the slow movements, but also for the magnificent ensemble playing of the whole team. Laurin’s interesting and informative booklet notes are the icing on the cake.”

Norwegian culture weekly Morgenbladet writes:


"Dan Laurin and 1B1 find the balance between theory and practice in Antonio Vivaldi's flute concerts. An album with seven Vivaldi concerts could be monotonous. But here, the phrasing is sophistical and varied. This applies both within the works, and in the composition of the album as a whole. The final finesse is secured by Laurin’s tasteful ornamentation, rich in content, but without being mannered or exaggerated.”
