Description: Published in 1735, this unusual batch of pieces has six short Introdttioni which are three-movment amalgams of sinfonia and concerto grosso (lasting 35 minutes in total), while the six concertos take 64 minutes and are rather free in form (from three to five movements) and rhapsodic in invention (No. 8 having the subtitle à immitazione de Corni da Caccia and No. 10 a reworking of Locatelli's sonata Op. 8/6). All contain examples of the ebullient virtuosity one expects from this violinist/composer. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Raglan Baroque Players; Elizabeth Wallfisch (violin). Orignal 1997 Hyperion release.
