Notes & Reviews:

Italian-born, Baroque-era composer Giovanni Platti left his native Italy in the 1720's to serve a Prince-Bishop in Wurzburg, Germany, where the concerti on this disc were composed. Recorded in 2011, this disc contains 3 World-Premiere recordings. Cellist Stefano Veggeti is the founder and artistic director of the period-instrument Ensemble Cordia. Mr. Veggetti teaches baroque cello at the Conservatory in Verona. Booklet contains notes on the music, the performers and the composer.

Expedition Audio Recommended
The music itself is quite delightful Performances are excellent and Brilliant Classics provides sonics that can rival recordings costing two or three times the money. To sum up, this is a very enjoyable album revealing a composer whose lively, elegant music will appeal to practically any listener. ... read more ...

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Giovanni Benedetto Platti (1697-1763) composed a large number of works for Rudolf Franz Erwein von Schonborn, ruler of the county of Weisentheid, who was a cellist. This is a clearly-recorded and beautifullyplayed program. If you wish to check duplications between this and the HM release, these concertos are in A, D, and D minor and the Corelli works are Op. 5: 1 and 3.
