CD Reviews

Musical gold.
Robert J. Cruce | Muskogee, OK United States | 07/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You can't do any better than this performance and recording in classical music. Its just that simple. There is perfection in everything here. Geminiani is not well known, but once upon a time Bach himself had to be rescued from obscurity. The textures are absorbing, this is not Vivaldi. But it is the work of a surpassingly great composer. You'll buy dozens of classical CD's and not come anywhere close to the excellence of this one."
Terrible sound.
Alexander Mendez | South Pasadena, CA United States | 07/04/2006

"The concerti are wonderful in themselves. The performances are a bit old-fashioned, but quite elegant-sounding. The main drawback is just flat-out terrible sound. The music sounds muted somehow as if the sound engineers just fiddled too much with it. Also, each concerto is on one track, which is just a dreadful habit that some record companies have. Still, I guess if you want to listen to these concerti you don't have much other choice than this recording."
Too bad this album is not as known!

"This is one of the best Baroque albums I have ever heard. If you are looking for something to take you back in time, this is the album!"
