Reviews and Recommendations

Promoter Feedback

‘Fontanella performed a beautiful concert in our weekend festival of early music. They had an excellent stage presence and were a joy to both hear and watch. Dealings with them prior to the event were very easy indeed, with the ensemble’s prompt communications and highly professional manner. I would heartily recommend them to any promoter’ David HatcherArtistic Director, Early Music at Discoed

‘From the first note of the concert by the Fontanella Recorder Quintet, it was clear that these five musicians were at the top of the performing tree.. This was a thoroughly professional presented and planned concert, played to the highest standards’ Andrew Benson-Wilson – Early Music Reviews (Read full review)

‘Last night the Truro Three Arts audience were treated to something different, when it welcomed the Fontanella Recorder Quintet. It was a revelation for most of us – who knew there were so many different types and sizes of recorders!? The ensemble presented an excellent and varied programme, from medieval to contemporary music, and they performed it with great skill. They also had excellent rapport with each other and with the audience, and they even got us singing! Thank you Fontanella for a wonderful evening!’ Truro Arts

‘We loved having you! Such beautiful playing, fabulous ensemble and very professional and pleasant to boot – what’s not to like?!’ Frome Concerts Group

‘The concert was the best attended of the season’ SASRA Music & Arts

‘Fontanella are an excellent recorder quintet and they clearly have an additional talent for working with children. They quickly established a rapport with their young audience (aged between three and seven) and engaged their attention for fifty minutes of music of quite some complexity. The children sat close up to the players, or wandered about happily nearby’ Border Marches Early Music Forum Full Review
