Penguin Guide, January 2009

ALBINONI: Oboe Concertos, Vol. 1 8.550739
ALBINONI: Oboe Concertos, Vol. 2 8.553002
ALBINONI: Oboe Concertos, Vol. 3 8.553035

The London Virtuosi use modern instruments, but their playing is fresh and refined and the digital recording is natural and beautifully balanced. The calibre of Anthony Camden’s solo contribution is readily shown in slow movements, matched by Georgiadis’s rapt, sensitive accompaniments. On the first disc Camden’s excellent colleague is Julia Girdwood, but for the two other collections Alison Alty takes over, and the partnership seems even more felicitous, with the two instruments blended quite perfectly. Also included is a Sinfonia arranged by Camden a Sinfonia concertante. This series can be strongly recommended on all counts.

Gramophone

"Anthony Camden and Julia Girdwood produce liquid sounds from their modern instruments and are as meltingly expressive in the slow movements as they are light on their feet in the flanking ones"



Classic CD

"A must for Baroque lovers"
