LOCATELLI: Concerti Grossi, Op. 1, Nos. 1- 6 8.553445
LOCATELLI: Concerti Grossi, Op. 1, Nos. 7-12 8.553446

Locatelli’s set of Opus 1 Concerti grossi, although indebted to Corelli (with the Eighth of the set ending with a Christmas Pastorale), similarly has a style and personality all its own. The invention is vigorous, the expressive range appealing. The Capella Istropolitana play with crisp attack, plenty of sparkle and resilient rhythms, while slow movements reveal a keen identity with the lessons of period performance, even though modern instruments are used. The Naxos recording is admirable.

Classic CD, September 1996

"Capella Istropolitana under its conductor/composer Jaroslav Krecek produces sparkling results...The sound quality does full justice to these admirable performances."

Early Music Review, September 1996

"The playing is very good...and the music bounces along, full of energy. Thoroughly enjoyable."

BBC Music Magazine

"This modern instrument performance is admirably crisp and delightful"
