This is a real gem of an album that no-one who likes Baroque music should ignore. It is packed with beautiful, vivid and lively melodies that you will find yourself humming for a while afterwards. For some reason Albinoni's Adagios alone are famous while the remainder of his concerti are seemingly ignored. This CD really makes one wonder why that is the case: much of the joy of his music is in the brisk Allegros. The playing throughout has real joie-de-vivre which is infectious. Music to take to your desert island.
