Product Description

Product Description

Chiara Banchini celebrates Albinoni with this opus 2 unrecorded the unknown elder of a new generation of venetian composers (Vivaldi, Marcello, Lotti...), the initiator of a new style, lively, colorful, combining structure and ornemental fantasy, related to venetian sensuality. This Albinoni recording is included in the range of records made by Chiara Banchini all committed to the recognition by the audience of italian violonistic repertoires essential to musical history of violin but not enough played and known : Corelli (rome; creator of sonatas da chiesa, da camera, Valentini (Corelli's challenger in Roma : using the rules while breaking them), Geminiani (Corelli's student and outstanding orchestrator), Tartini (theoretian of natural in music) and now Albinoni.

Review

Bucking the current fashion for hard-driven VIvaldi, Chiara Banchini and Ensemble 415 (all her pupils) deliver string concerto performances of airy delight. The focus is on the concerti for 4 violins from the ground-breaking set l Estro Armonico. So many notes, interviewing; yet with Banchini's team of soloists everything stays elegant, subtle and unclogged. The disc markes 10 years of excellent releases from this idiosyncratic French Label. --Geoff Brown - The Times - UK August 2007

What these performances have in greater measure than some e rival versions of L'estro armonico are a warmth of timbre - quite distinct from that of l'Arte dell Arco for instance - and a spirit of intimate music-making. A rewarding disc; perhaps the remaining eight concertos of L'estro armonico will follow. Let's hope so. --BBC Music Magazine - December 2007 - Nicolas Anderson

Albinoni was a baroque composer who i feel was at the height of his creative powers early in his life.His string sonatas op1 (1694),op2 (1700) and op3 (1701) are his best compositions and although his later concertos op5,op7,op9 and op10 are still finely crafted works,it's his early sonatas that are the most appealing.The performances on this cd by Ensemble 415 are excellent in every way and so is the sound.
Albinoni's op2 is fine music but it's his op1(recorded by Parnassi Musici on CPO )that will delight the most.

This is a terrific CD of Albinoni's Op.2 sonatas. It's very good and in my view underrated music, and Chiara Banchini and her ensemble do it proud.

Albinoni is an easy composer to get wrong. He doesn't go in for quite the same virtuosic pyrotechnics as Vivaldi and there have been quite a lot of recordings which simply coast through his music in pleasant but uninspired performances which create little more than Baroque wallpaper. Here, we get a proper, inspiring and in places extremely beautiful performance. I knew I was in good hands the moment the disc started with the opening Largo of the C major Sonata. It is played beautifully and given real feeling and meaning without resorting to any over-sentimental Romantic gestures. It's a very difficult trick to pull off but Ensemble 415 do it brilliantly and much if the rest of the disc is just as good. With a chamber ensemble of 8 players they bring out the variety of sense and emotion in the music throughout and even the continuo on theorbo and organ or harpsichord has real colour to it. The recorded sound is excellent and makes these fine performances really shine.

I am very pleased to have found this disc. Banchini has been making very good discs for many years and I think this is another gem. Very warmly recommended.

A very good recording of some of Albinoni's best music. No oboes here, a fine string ensemble at work. It's really quite the epitome of baroque music- a busy interaction of voices, fugal elements, exquisite harmonies, a few astounding slow mvts and a few strutting fast ones. This could be heard many many times over and become a favourite for fans of the baroque.

a most have!!! 24 Nov. 2011

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the best interpretation ever of this op 2 of Tomaso Albinoni the interaction between each artist is so coordinated that seems they are just only one player doing everything in a complete extasis of perfection every detail every nuance and inflection, not to mention this recording is up to this very day well balance and detailed with good bass. not to miss, highly recommended.
