'Delightful … played with vivacity and finesse' (Gramophone)

'What a breath of fresh air! Played as they should be and never have been 'til now. This recording is a complete delight, a small pattering of allegros and adagios that purr as happily as a spring rain' (The Magic Flute, USA)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
With the concerto in D minor for oboe and strings (Op 9 No 2) we have Albinoni’s best solo concerto. After an energetic first movement, characterized by dotted rhythms, comes a ravishing slow movement. Accompanied by repeated chords in the lower strings and a harp-like configuration in the first violin, the soloist has a soaring line: here is Albinoni at his most appealingly melodic. The concluding movement keeps both soloist and orchestra busy with an imitative arpeggiated figure and plenty of counterpoint.
