Format: Audio CD
Alessandro Marcello (1669-1747), the eldest of the Marcello brothers, was, unlike his better-known contempories Vivaldi and Albinoni, a member of the Venetian nobility. He was however a much less prolific composer than Benedetto (1686-1739), his younger brother who had around seven hundred compositions to his credit. Alessandro's keen interest in music resulted in a large personal collection of instruments, ranging from the traditional, e.g. crumhorns, to the most recent and fashionable inventions, e.g. a fortepiano made in Florence in 1724. Many of his concertos involve two oboes, although the best known is the concerto in D minor for solo oboe. Around 1738 a set of six concertos appeared from publication in Augsburg entitled "La cetra" ("The Lyre")in which the composer gave clear instructions as to the scoring with a total of fifteen instruments divided into six groups. The concertos adopt the three-movement pattern of the typical Venetian concerto and may date from well before their publication. The Concerto in B flat major, the final work on the disc, is not from a published collection and is a four-part ripieno, surviving in a Venetian manuscript showing some signs of revision. Simon Standage and Collegium Musicum 90, specialising in historical performances of baroque and classical repertoire, fully do justice to Marcello's music and I would recommend this CD to anyone with an interest in the Baroque and Venetian composers.

Alessandro Marcello's 'La Cetra' concertos have afforded me many delights as a consequence of excellent performances by the Collgium Musicum with Simon Standage, and a fine Chandos recording.

I am hooked on the baroque age of classical music. The venitians win again ! No end of pleasure listening to my old friend Alessendro and occasionaly his brother ( let us not forget him either). I can only be unfair in my comments I love the time too much!

Great Work from a Master 24 Feb. 2010
By John Doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's annoying when masters like Corelli and Marcello get tags like "competent." When J.S. Bach studies your work for ideas, "competent" doesn't do you justice. This is a great collection, without a clunker in the bunch. Imaginative, consistent and tastefully done, this is a nice introduction to Alessandro Marcello. You could do a lot worse.

wonderful morning music 20 Mar. 2010
By Paul M. Visokay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There is nothing like getting up in the morning and listening to an album like this. It is regal, majestic, tremendous amount of energy and joy. There are parts of it which are peaceful, and meditative, but still joyful. And the variety is exciting. There is nothing you will not like.

Good Purchase 1 Jun. 2012
By zerosykess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
With over 700 cd's, one strains to find newer composers with skills and talent equal to the great masters. I purchased this cd (for less than $10.00 shipped to my mailbox) and was pleasantly surprised. Very friendly music with fluttering flutes and complimenting cello and oboe at times. I was glad the continuo was equally audible throughout. Much of this music seems to have a light, stately, aristocratic, brassy flair. Violins are well played and clear. A vibrant yet relaxing cd.

Marcello appears a first class and a gifted composer. This recording and these artists are pleasing and excellent! I hope to aquire more of Marcello in the comming months. I give approbation with regal and majestic sound akin to Mozart, Salieri, Handel, and others.

What many individuals don't realise is there are many comparable composers in history whose copious works have been lost or diminished in breadth due to a myriad of circumstances beyond control. I would also place Albinoni, Locatelli, Corelli, Buxtrhude, Geminiani, Manfredini, and Caldara in the same category. Please give them a try if you already have the basic repertoire of the great masters.

My greatest recommendations and endorsements would be to suggest one to listen to Boccherini and Tartini. There are newer findings and recordings of great quality and sound by these two virtuosic and master composers which will elevate them, over a short period of time, to become commonplace along Vivaldi, and Haydn.

This review is merely my opinion as I do not seek nor relish any hostile or vindictive animus.

Good Day Friends !!
This is a Five Star CD! ***** 4 Nov. 2014
By Oudman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an exceptional CD and I wanted to note that the one star review has nothing to do with the music. I felt obligated to post a 5 Star review both to offset the negative review and because I believe the CD deserves Five Stars! Every piece is innovative and musical, and the performances are crisp, clean and lively. The intonation is great and I can listen to each disc multiple times and the music still sounds fresh. This is a Five Star CD! *****
