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

'The performances are of high quality, well paced, sensitive and fresh, and the recording is well balanced and vivid' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In its fast movements Sonata 9 employs double-stopping of a more contrapuntal kind, so that the single violin simulates the sound of the two violins in a trio sonata. In the second movement the bass has some dazzling rapid flights.
