Notes and Editorial Reviews

American Bach Soloists and Delos International announce their new partnership and their plans to release new titles and exciting back-catalogue on the Delos International label. Named 'the best American specialists in early music' by the Washington Post. The American Bach Soloists were founded in 1989 with the mission of introducing contemporary audiences to the cantatas of J.S. Bach through historically informed performances. Under the leadership of co-founder and Music Director Jeffrey Thomas, the ensemble has worked toward assembling the world's finest vocalists and period instrument performers to bring this brilliant music to life. Corelli's Conceto Grossi have long enjoyed their important placement in classical repertoire (and sales Read more figures to match), and are well-loved with casual listeners and core consumers. As popular in their day as today, these concerti are an important addition to each collection and classical retail outlet. This significant WORLD PREMIERE recording features the unique 1725 London version with solos transcribed for two recorders, instead of the customary two solo violins, in three of the six concertos. The phenomenal playing of Dan Laurin and Hanneke van Proosdij, recorders, has garnered worldwide acclaim, and makes this a release not to miss. Read less
