Notes & Reviews:

Little is known about the life of violinist Pietro Antonio Locatelli, but history has not failed us in the account of Locatelli's work, published as a magnum opus known as "L'arte del Violino." These 24 Capricci were included therein, though only as optional additions to the 12 concertos comprising the bulk of the collection. Showpieces in their own right, they rank among the most difficult music of their day - comparable even to Paganini's capricci. Stellar interpretation by violinist Emmanuelle Baldini makes this recording a fascinating addition to any early music catalog.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Well, Emmanuele Baldini not only enters it with aplomb, but he exits unscathed. He gives the most enjoyable readings of these works that I have heard. He doesn't just have the technical equipment to pull them off and then some, but he sounds like he's playing with a smile on his face. His enjoyment of the music is infectious, and I enjoyed listening to this from beginning to end. People with a taste for virtuoso violin music will find this set a real pleasure.
