Notes & Reviews:

The waning of the era of lute player in the early 18th century coincided with the rise of the smallest member of the lute family, the soprano lute, also known as the mandolino, mandola or leutino in Southern Italy, especially in Naples, the city of music. In the following decades, the city of Naples, with its famous conservatories, saw the birth of a number of compositions for mandolin. Many distinguished composers set out to discover the new possibilities this instrument offered.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
First, a word to the guitarists: this is Giovanni Francesco Giuliani. His concerto, and Giovanni Hoffmann's, are the most interesting works here. We have here four mandolin concertos, all from minor figures in the classical period. All are quite well played, on historical instruments, and without the wiriness that so often disfigures such ensembles. Emanuele Barbella's concerto is for mandolin with two violins and bass. Recordings of mandolin concertos are rare enough, and the playing on this recording is strong.
