Intellectual and Sensual Purcell - Purcell's Fantazias are magnificent music - fresh, inspired, and amazingly expressive - there are moments when one feels that Beethoven and Schubert's string quartets are not so far away. Phantasm's interpretation is as fresh as the music, the ensemble playing is polished, and the sensitivity and eloquence of the viol sound mark a great triumph.You can almost feel the sympathetic vibrations of the viols so much that, when you listen carefully, you imagine yourself seated in the middle of the ensemble.
