Notes and Editorial Reviews

This set is offered at a special price: 2 discs for the cost of 1.

"Corelli's Op. 6 contains two types of concerto, one termed da chiesa, the other da camera. The first eight concertos of the set belong to the former category, while the remaining four, of a less ostensibly serious character, belong to the second. Sometimes the differences are little more than terminological since there are, for instance, several clearly dance-orientated movements among the da chiesa concertos. The Brandenburg Consort give an affectionate and stylish account of these works...The playing is full of vitality and also responsive to the satisfying sounds inherent in Corelli's rich ripieno textures. The concertino group of two violins and cello
Read more also comes over effectively, providing that balanced contrast between small and larger units of sound.

Goodman and his ensemble react spontaneously to the rapidly changing rhythms and speeds, sometimes within a single movement, yet are careful not to hinder the clarity of Corelli's design. Equally they are receptive to the swiftly changing moods, at times almost mercurial, of the da chiesa concertos. The nobility and graceful gestures of slow movements are affectingly realized while faster ones are played with abundant energy."
