The two previous CDs by Mala Punica were highly acclaimed and received high marks from many periodicals. This one had on my CD cover a Diapason d'Or and a 10 from Répertoire. It would be rather difficult to disagree.
We have here what looks to be the last of Mala Punica's series on the Arcana label, and the most sophisticated yet. This is based on a program made up of pieces which quote others, and the resulting web of allusions is quite sophisticated, as is the literary style of the liner notes. Quite a nut to crunch.
