(4 out of 5 stars)
"I first saw a few clips of this DVD on YouTube, then I decided to purchase it. I have not regretted my purchase. The atmosphere of the church hall in which Starobin delivers the music of Sor and Giuliani is completely apt for this innocent and beautiful music played on an equally beautiful period instrument. My only regrets are (a) that we did not really see any attractive footage of "historic London", beyond the pretty country lane outside the church, and (b)that the DVD was not actually a bit longer. David Starobin could have spoken about the pieces and their history a little more, too, but a serious student will find this information through other resources. For the playing and the atmosphere, this professional DVD certainly deserves its 4 stars!"
