Julia Gooding has that rare combination of a rich, beautiful voice (a timbre of burnished antique gold, according to one critic), musical understanding, technical control and virtuoso agility.

Sebastian Comberti is a leading figure in the period instrument world, playing principal cello with the major orchestras and in demand as a chamber musician and soloist.

A graceful, vital musician with an elegant technique and a razor-sharp feeling for phrasing and accent.
