Noble playing
Princiotti displays complete mastery of the instrument, and a refined musical sense. His slow movements are haunting, his fast movements electric.

Alan Parshley

Telemann, 12 Fantasias for Solo Violin
The playing was expressive and technically impressive. The recording acoustic was wonderful- warm, but clear, and with a lovely simplicity and directness of not often found in recordings today. Bravo!
