  • «I am very impressed by this disc, not only because of the way the programme has been put together, but also the quality of the music selected for this recording and the way it is played. The performances are technically impeccable, stylish and imaginative. The phrasing and articulation are excellent, and there is a nice dynamic shading. The ornamentation is generous, but never exaggerated.
    Recently I have reviewed several outstanding discs with baroque violin music, and this is another one lovers of the baroque violin should definitely not miss.» Johan van Veen (musica Dei donum 2018)
  • «Esta música es excelente, por lo que no hace falta preguntarse por qué Pisendel la metió en valija y se la llevó consigo a Dresde. La interpretación de Scaramuccia es tan deslumbrante como la propia música. Discazo.» Eduardo Torrico (Scherzo, Dec. 2108)
  • «Die verschiedenen Kompositionen werden mit musikantischer Frische und Versiertheit sowie einer mitreißenden Technik dargeboten. Die Musiker von ‘Scaramuccia’, allen voran der Geiger Javier Lupianez, spielen dabei mit einer kraftvollen Gestik auf. Die vielen effektvollen Details der Partitur werden mit Raffinesse herausgearbeitet und mit großem Engagement ausgeführt. Fresh and vivid performances in a natural lifelike sound quality.» Pizzicato, 11 Nov. 2018
  • 5/5  «Clearly, this is demanding music – Javier Lupiáñez combines a fine bowing arm with some nifty fingerwork, seemingly undaunted by the technical challenges, while his continuo partners provide stylishly supportive accompaniment. It is a sobering thought that these six extremely fine works represent only the tip of the tip of the iceberg that is Pisendel’s library of works gathered from his Italian contacts – that the library in Dresden has made them all available online is encouraging groups like Scaramuccia (who have even established their own recording company to produce this CD!) to explore the vast riches which it contains. Given the high standards set here, I hope it will not be too long before we hear more from them!» Brian Clark, Early Music Review
  • «Fascinating CD»… «They are technically outstanding and balanced with rare sensitivity» Brian Robins, Early Music Review
  • ICMA Nomination, best baroque instrumental music recording 2019


Antonio Lucio Vivaldi. Nuove Sonate (Ayros, 2016)

  • “Le programme des «nuove Sonate» pour violon interprétées brillamment par Javier Lupiáñez accompagné par l’ensemble Scaramuccia” – Studi Vivaldiani, 2016
