Reviews

'Graceful in character … melodically appealing. An enjoyable and very worthwhile release, illuminating less familiar aspects of Albinoni's music' (Gramophone)

'These discs will be a revelation to those who honor Corelli … here is his compositional successor. Superb notes by Michael Talbot complement this sumptuous set of golden treasures. Warmly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
Sonata 3 has one of the most ornate opening movements (although Albinoni never fills his solo lines with so much embellishment that the player cannot add an additional quota).

La Sonate 3 a un des mouvements initiaux les plus ornés (bien qu’Albinoni ne remplisse jamais ses lignes solo de tant d’ornements que l’interprète ne puisse en ajouter des siens).

Die Sonate 3 hat einen der am reichsten verzierten Kopfsätze (obwohl Albinoni seine Soloparts nie mit soviel Ausschmückung versieht, daß der Interpret nicht noch einiges hinzufügen könnte).
