"This is a welcome dollop of Corelli. The Op. 1 Sonatas on the first CD are disappointing. They are uninteresting melodically and harmonically. The later works on the remaining 3 CDs are much better. They are decidedly modern sounding in their harmonic adventurousness, and often recall Corelli's brilliant concerti grossi. The performances are quite worthy. The violinists posess a good tone and solid technique, while the cellist is an absolute delight in the occasional passages where he is allowed to shine. The CDs were recorded in different locales each, but the sound, despite differences between the CDs, is always clear and engaging. I will be sampling the last 3 CDs from time to time, which seems to me the best way to appreciate this particular recording."
