Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recent research has revealed the existence of a practice which has been hitherto ignored: that of doubling the instrumental music composed and conducted by Corelli with all sorts of wind instruments. This practice forces a re-examination of the faithful reproduction of the compositions as printed, which has prevailed up until now. This is thus the first complete performance of the twelve Concerti Grossi by Corelli which attempts to accurately reconstruct the works' historical-musical context.

 Recommended - Performance and Sound August 31, 2016 By W. Wilborn (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "I really like these Concerti Grossi performed by I Musici on the Phillips Classics label. They have excellent full sound and wonderful performances. This Tactus label offering is really quite fabulous, incorporating wind instruments according to historical performances. The sound and performances are really excellent. I am very pleased to have this compilation in my library and have really been enjoying them. Recommended." Report Abuse
