“it is now over half a century since Nikolaus Harnoncourt founded his Vienna Concentus Musicus. Their polished ensemble, musical finesse and their tonal sonorities have been achieved by a sound technical ability on the part of each and every individual, and by that homogeneity of outlook which exists only when musicians play together regularly. His band, has been a stimulus and an inspiration to almost all present-day practitioners of ‘period’ instruments.” [Gramophone]
