Notes and Editorial Reviews

The concerto grosso form was popularized by Corelli, and Locatelli’s Op 1 is a marvelous example of the genre: its solid craftsmanship, imaginative textures and exciting virtuosity bringing it into the top rank. These works are ravishingly performed here by The Raglan Baroque Players, Nicholas Kraemer and soloist Elizabeth Wallfisch.

R E V I E W:

"Locatelli’s Op. 3 violin concertos, L’arte del violino, were famous chiefly for their fiendishly tricky caprices for solo violin. Such virtuoso fireworks are largely absent from this youthful set of concerti grossi...These 12 concerti grossi were first published in 1721, when Locatelli was just 26. A tribute to Corelli, the work is modelled on the latter’s
Read more celebrated Op. 6, with each concerto divided into several brief, contrasting sections....The Raglan Baroque Players provide lively, sensitive performances."
