Notes & Reviews:
Like Vivaldi, Pietro Antonio Locatelli was both an outstanding instrumentalist and an erudite composer. He dazzled the whole of Europe with his virtuoso skills. To be sure, his Concerti Grossi owe a great deal to the model of Corelli - except that, in some respects, the disciple shows up the master. The Freiburger Barockorchester and Gottfried von der Goltz attack the virtuosic technical demands of these Baroque gems with gusto. Only Nicoḷ Paganini risked passages of comparable difficulty.
