I bought this ten years ago, and although it has been repackaged many times since it is still one of the CDs I return to again and again, even though I have a collection of over 2000 CDs. The playing is simply outstanding - I challenge anyone to listen to it and not be overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the more lyrical movements and the danceable joy of the more lively movements. The ensemble integration is an absolutely joy to behold - the ritardandos are meticulously together, and the stylish decoration of lines by Simon Standage and Micaela Comberti are quite beautiful. The finesse of the continuo playing is dazzling - well the reputation of Trevor Pinnock (outstanding director and harpsichordist) and Jaap ter Linden (violoncello) speak for themselves.

This is simply one of the finest Baroque discs available (no I do not work for the record company or The English Concert) - I'm just a humble admirer of some of the finest Baroque playing put to disc. Please buy it - your life will be much better for it.

Before I bought these CD's I had only come across No.1 and No.8 before.Now I know them all, I have played them many times. I can only describe these performances as electrifying. Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert bring such clarity and energy to the music, you will not want to put the CD down.If you only buy one CD this year make sure it is this one.You are sure to be as thrilled as I was.

If you need one Corelli recording, this is the one to get. Quite possibly the best baroque record I've heard. The English concert not only put on an exceptional performance but the sound quality is truly amazing and will make you stop and listen to these fantastically melodic concerti.

I heard the theme of concerto no 8 by Corelli, which is part of this CD,on TV and began searching for this particular piece on amazon.co.uk which gave the result Corelli: 12 concerti Grossi Op 6 conducted by Niel Pinnock. It is some of the most beautifull music performed by great musicians. Well worth the price.

This is a great Baroque album of Corelli's op 6 Concerti Grossi. It won a Gramophone Awards Collection for Early Music - Baroque 1989. There have been a lot of changes in performance practice and interpretation but this is still an outstanding performance and recording. Of course I love the No. 8 in G minor 'Christmas Concerto'. It is truly inspiring. Another full concerto that I particularly enjoy is No 4 in D major. Corelli seems to have enjoyed F major since there are four concerti in F major ( Nos 2, 6, 9, 12) And in all the concertos there are things to admire whether from the soloists,or the continuo players or the main band. The English Concert with Trevor Pinnock are a class act. This is a lovely collection to own.

These award winning readings are simply stunning in terms of the excellence of the musicianship on display and the incredible sound. I only purchased these recently, previously only knowing a couple of these concerti, and I was struck by the outstanding merits of this set when it was discussed in BBC Radio 3's building a library. These are marvellous works and this is special music making of the finest order. don't hesitate.

I have not had time to listen to these TWO CD's more than once but after just one session I love the overall timbre and atmosphere of the pieces.
Recording quality and performances are spot on.
