VITALI, G.B.: Sonate da camera (Italico Splendore) TC632206
VITALI, G.B.: Sonate da camera, Op. 14 - Suites Nos. 1-6 (Italico Splendore) TC632202

I have enjoyed both discs. Italico Splendore is a fine ensemble, and explores the features of both collections to the full. In the Op. 11 performances, the dance rhythms come off very well, thanks to an excellent articulation and a clear dynamic differentiation between 'good' and 'bad' notes. They show that no percussion is needed to make the listener feel the dance rhythms. 

The project of recording Vitali's output is important and the performances I have heard are good or even outstanding. This is the first review devoted to discs in this series. More will follow in due course. © 2020 musica Dei donum Read complete review

Records International, June 2020

This fifth of six Vitali volumes contains sonatas for six instruments, published in Modena in 1684. These are dance movements grouped by tone in the typical manner of a suite, in a sophisticated blend of Italian and French styles. © 2020 Records International
