"...his [Brachetta] playing is fluent, his characterisations lively and idiomatic, and his use of two different instruments, one bright and light, the other with a smokier timbre, helps give definition to the several works. He is most at home in the French works, and the disc’s final track, by Louis Couperin, is a highlight..."

"...Instinctively idiomatic, he [Brachetta] is compelling throughout ... An auspicious debut - judging by Fantasticus’s past form, though, that is to be expected."
Paul Riley - BBC Music magazine - May 2014
"... Brachetta, a native of Argentina but trained principally in The Netherlands, complements his captivating programme with unfailingly vigorous and technically assured playing, surmounting every difficulty with apparent ease and conveying a wealth of fine details of articulation and phrasing. An important feature of his performances is his finely judged tempos, which tend to be slower than commonly heard on disc... A single theme recitl as satisfying as this deserves a sequel, so let us hope Brachetta will next record a programme devoted to the passacaglia. After that, the way will be open to a recital of La Follia variations."
