Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, October 2009

Durante is best known as one of the founders of the Neapolitan school of music. Most of his works consist of sacred music, in which breadth, vigour and resourcefulness are more evident than originality of style. Pergolesi and Paisiello are counted among his many students, who dominated the lyric stage during the latter part of the 18th C. The concerti presented here enjoy robust performances by soloist-conductor Werner Ehrhardt, with the harpsichord well balanced in the recording.
