GEMINIANI: Concerti Grossi, Vol. 1 8.553019
GEMINIANI: Concerti Grossi, Vol. 2 8.553020

This is part of an ongoing Naxos project to record all Geminiani’s Concerti grossi using modern instruments but in a style which clearly reflects the freshness and vitality of period-instrument practice. The Capella Istropolitana offer excellent accounts of Op. 2, Op. 3, and including the whole of Op. 7. The performances are striking for their freshness and vitality, and they are very well recorded. Bargain-hunters need not hesitate.
