Reviews

'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)

'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)

'Very attractive music, captivatingly played' (Soundscapes, Australia)

'En definitiva, una version absolutamente indispensable' (CD Compact, Spain)
An opening chromatic bass line proclaims Sonata 8 as a work charged with high emotion; the rasping violin chords in its second movement convey a mood of desperate urgency.

from notes by Michael Talbot © 1994

La Sonate 8 est un morceau empreint d’intense émotion, comme le révèle sa ligne de basse chromatique initiale; les âpres accords de violon de son deuxième mouvement évoquent une atmosphère d’insistance désespérée.

extrait des notes rédigées par Michael Talbot © 1994
Français: Alain Midoux

Die chromatische Baßlinie zur Eröffnung erklärt die Sonate 8 zum emotional stark aufgeladenen Werk; die ächzenden Violinakkorde ihres zweiten Satzes vermitteln den Eindruck verzweifelter Dringlichkeit.
