Notes and Editorial Reviews

...I’ll get my one grumble out of the way first. Like all the recordings in the Classical Express series, these two Corelli CDs come with most unimaginative covers... They are, however, recommendable on every other count – idiomatic direction, with sprightly but not exaggeratedly fast tempi, splendid orchestral playing and excellent recording.
