Everything is recommendable.

"Those who want to hear what other composers were doing during Bach and Handel's time should snap up some of the many CDs featuring the works of Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni in the Naxos catalogue. His oboe concerti are collected on three Naxos CDs. The works are charming, mellifluous and engaging. They are also amongst the first extended series of concerti written for oboe soloist with orchestra. Everything is recommendable in Volume 2 of the Naxos series: oboist Anthony Camden and the London Virtuosi provide polished, neat performances, the sound is natural, and the liner notes by Michael Talbot are fully informative."

"Albinoni was a contemporary of the better known JS Bach and in my opinion he is not as good as Bach but compared to modern composers he is quite accomplished. The oboe is a very sensual instrument and when one hears this it can easily lead to various states of emotionality. Albinoni does this quite well and the Naxos recording does this masterfull composer justice with a quite accomplished recording. Anthony Camden is a very skilled oboist and he brings the music to life and is an interesting read from what I read in the well-written booklet that comes with the music. This is a recording that I highly recommend and it is truly a pleasure to listen and experince should a fine recording."

"This was my first CD of music produced by Albinoni, and I was quite pleased. I first discovered Albinoni while listening to my local classical station. After hearing a fantastic Baroque piece, I jotted down the name of the composer and looked him up later. Albinoni's music is wonderful, especially if you are a fan of the classic Baroque style (as I am). This CD contains a superb collection of oboe concerti which rival any oboe pieces I have ever heard. Wonderful in your car, at the office, or just relaxing at home with a good book. Very nice collection!"
