TOMASO ALBINONI (1672-1751): Concerti a 5, Op. 10, Nos. 1-4, 7, 8, 11 & 12.
Catalogue Number: 06L023
Label: Chandos Chaconne
Description: This last of Albinoni's publications came out in 1735 and adds a more modern, galant harmonic idiom to his traditional baroque formal design. Although a solo violin is present, it never plays without the rest of the orchestra, departing from traditional Venetian style. NOTE: An Arts release last November (11L021) offered a selection of these Op. 10 concertos also but it did not contain Nos. 3 and 12. Collegium Musicum 90; Simon Standage.
