Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though a nobleman by birth, Benedetto Marcello was a serious amateur composer who wrote in many of the genres of his day. This 3 CD set focuses on his 12 concertos for strings and 5 sinfonias, both dating from the latter half of his composing career. What Benedetto's work lacked in compositional virtuosity they made up for in sheer inventiveness and quirky detail. A captivating release that documents the early development of two important forms with extraordinary playing by I solisti di Milano.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Some collectors may have this set on LP because these works were recorded in 1967. But 1967 is a long time ago; probably many do not have these at all. Newton, a small Dutch company (distributed by Naxos in the USA), is doing a great service for collectors with its initial emphasis on re-releasing excellent recordings from the past.

Notes & Reviews:
