Format: Audio CD
This is a splendid recording of the complete set of the Op.6 Concerti Grossi by Arcangelo Corelli, performed by the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields conducted by Neville Marriner. Corelli lived a generation before the better-known Antonio Vivaldi but he wrote concertos in a similar style. String instruments much as we know them today were developed in Cremona in the 17th and 18th centuries by three families in particular - Amati, Guarneri and Stradivari - to replace the viols that had been used in the previous centuries. As a result, there were several composers, in Italy especially but also elsewhere in Europe, who composed works for these exciting new-sounding instruments. The Concerto Grosso was effectively a musical structure that subsequently, in the hands of Albinoni and Vivaldi, became known simply as concertos, often with one, two or four solo violinists. Here there are three string players - two violins and one cello - playing as a group (the `concertino') in contrast to the whole body of strings (the `concerto grosso'). In addition we have a bass line or continuo made up of Christopher Hogwood, Trevor Pinnock and Colin Tilney on harpsichord or organ and Robert Spencer and James Tyler on theorbos. These concerti are quite short pieces - the longest is the `Christmas Concerto, No. 8 in the set at 13 minutes - but are they all quite delightfully warm sounding in this recording.

This should for part of anyone's collection of the opus 6. It was the first time really that the music got a 'fair' interpretation.

These concerti are well performed and occupy the mind in the Baroque period well. I find this set a good bargain as a two CD set and am glad to own it.

Conerti Grossi Op 6 27 Oct. 2000
By "katja_r" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are many ways to enjoy the music on this CD. As with many recordings from the Baroque era this one makes great wallpaper. I find that hearing it while I do other things brightens my day without being intrusive. Although ambient music is usually credited as a product of the twentieth century, I find that this music also creates a delightful ambience. On the level of musical history, Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713) is an interesting composer. Handel and Locatelli are some of his more famous students. The Brandenburg Concertos reveal that Bach also was influenced by his music. Timothy A. Smith identifies Corelli as a "critical link in the evolution of the Baroque concerto grosso and sonata formats." He is credited as a master of the trio sonata which became the source of the Classical era symphonic form. A pioneer of violin technique and originator of synchronized bowing in an orchestra, he was hailed as the greatest virtuoso of the violin in his time because of his technical mastery. In modern vernacular, he was a "Rock Star". Corelli's place in history makes this music interesting to me, knowing that he was held in high esteem by great composers. This is not to suggest that the music is uninteresting. I find that when I pay attention, I am amply rewarded. C.#3 in C minor has an arresting beginning with sustained chords which remind me of some of Haydn's symphonies. C.#10 in C major breaks with tradition as it contains five movements. This may not seem scandalous to us three centuries removed, however, these types of details provoked prolonged and acrimonious dispute, according Christopher Hogwood who wrote the notes. He writes that a notorious scandal erupted when, in one of Corelli's Opus 2 trios, it was suspected he had used consecutive fifths. Both the Preludio and Adagio are grand and the Allegro approaches a frenetic pace. C#9 in F major introduces the Adagio with a lilting melody on a theorbo (lute). All of the Concerti are great, even so, these are the ones I enjoy the most. You may find others which you enjoy. If you are interested in one of the greatest composers of the Baroque period or in music which is pleasent, this CD will be interesting to you.

Beautiful, fresh, intense, serene. 27 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not really educated when it comes to classical music. I just know what I like. This recording of Arcangelo Corelli is absolutely astounding! Each and every piece on both disks is superb. It's soothing and yet alive.
#10 Grave - Andante Largo is oh so short, but soulfully melodious and intricate.
The violeins in #14 Allemanda: Allegro are crisp and clean.
#15 Corrente: Vivace is elegant.
If you like Vivaldi and Scarlatti you will like these two disk. Well worth every penny.

Well executed, flaws in final mix 25 Aug. 2008
By Patrick G. Andre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The re-master of a 1974 Decca Record recording is excellent in execution and style. Neveille Marriner and St. Martin-in-the-Fields perform in their typical excellent manner.

However, the recording over emphasize the soloist. I find this unfortunate, since the play between the opposing instruments is a little lost.

Still, an excellent recording.

A Bit of a Trail Blazer 30 Aug. 2012
By Peter Besenbruch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Once upon a time there was this ensemble called I Musici, and they ruled the Italian Baroque scene. Their recording of the Corelli Concerti Grossi Op. 6 ruled the roost (not the current I Musici release, but the one with Felix Ayo and Walter Gallozzi). Characterized by tight ensemble work, good playing and a style that can best be described as heavy, driving, and tub thumping, it was a nice intro to some very influential music.

In 1973, The Academy of St. Martin in-the-Fields under Neville Marriner recorded their version. A decidedly lighter weight recording (no tub thumping here), it experimented with several things.

First, the over-all bowing by the strings was lighter and more separate, particularly in the fast movements. You would never confuse the Marriner recording with one performed on original instruments, but it marked quite a change from I Musici. Alan Loveday and Carmel Kaine handle the solo violin parts with ease.

Second was the use of a diverse continuo section. Organ and harpsichord got mixed in the same piece, and theorbos were added. The keyboard continuo section was, shall we say, interesting: Christopher Hogwood (founded the Academy of Ancient Music), Trevor Pinnock (founded the English Consort), and Colin Tilney (who stayed a very good harpsichord soloist). Hogwood prepared the edition that gets played here.

Third, they experiment with one instrument per part in the final four concerti of the set. This is a practice that's common now, but was somewhat revolutionary in 1973.

Fourth, they experiment with the tempi. The finale, for example, of concerto 8 (the so-called Christmas Concerto) is marked "largo." There is a real danger of taking this so slowly it disintegrates into mush. Not here. Largo means fast; you get a energetic shepherds' dance, outstripping even McGegan's Philharmonia Baroque recording.

The overall sound and clarity of this recording isn't bad, but it is a product of its earlier age. You buy this recording for historical interest, and because of the caliber of musicianship. It's still a very nice listen.
