Notes & Reviews:

Born in 1697, twelve years after Bach and Handel, Giovanni Benedetto Platti left nine Concerti per il cembalo obligato that represent not only some of the earliest examples of compositions for keyboard and strings, but also - even more importantly - some of the first pieces written specifically for the new instrument invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori, the fortepiano. Here, for the first time on period instruments, Luca Guglielmi presents three of those brilliant, groundbreaking compositions, together with the large-scale C-minor Piano Sonata, which was widely popular in Europe at that time, and the typically Baroque Sonata per oboe solo, with special guest Paolo Grazzi, oboe. Amazing music from a composer who deserves to be recognized as one of the greatest of his time.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Passages in the concertos are reminiscent of Vivaldi and also fit the classical elegance of the courtly dance. The ensemble of two violins, viola, and cello, along with excellent oboist Paolo Grazzi, plays with graceful ebb and flow, subtle interplay between instruments, and eloquent variety of articulation. As soloist, Guglielmi brings out the best in this fine music and instrument with deft and nuanced sensitivity to subtle shades of color as well as expert technique.
