Notes & Reviews:
A substantial portion of the great Italian-baroque composer Tomaso Albinoni's works are mostly unknown. Therefore, Brilliant Classics plans to issue a substantial series of his works, starting with this complete, and first recording of the Trattenimenti Armonici, op. 6, a series of 12 sonatas for violin, cello and instrumental ensemble, in Sonata da Chiesa style, by the Zero Emission Baroque Orchestra. Recorded in 2013, the booklet contains notes on the composer, work and performance.
American Record Guide, January/February 2015
For this recording the musicians took a cue from the da Chiesa structure and used a chamber organ for the continuo, along with cello and violin. In some movements either the cello or the organ is used alone to emphasize the character of the music. This is a fine rendition. I think it was a good decision to use an organ for continuo. The other complete set is from Newton and is played with flute and harpsichord. So the instrumentation for each release is quite different. Good sound, decent notes.
Recording information: Santuario di San Bernardino, Caravaggio, Bergamo (03/2013/05/2013).
