Notes & Reviews:

Giovanni Benedetto Platti was an "oboista", an oboe virtuoso, at the Court of the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg. In 1722 Platti responded to the call of the Wurzburg regent, who wished to lend his royal chapel the brilliance that only Italian music could provide. Platti came to the city on the Main River - after his employer's death only two years later, he continued to remain under his successors.

Florian Birsak's playing is outstanding, and so are the performances of Rüdiger Lotter and Sebastian Hess. They fully explore the qualities of Platti's music, and both the virtuosic and the more expressive aspects of these pieces are convincingly conveyed. The tempi are well-chosen: the fast movements come off really fast, and in the slow movements they take their time in order to expose the expression. The ensemble is immaculate and results in an eloquent dialogue between the three instruments.
