Product Description

CD Review Disc of the Week ***** Irish Times 'Giovanni Benedetto Platti (1697-1763) spent the last four decades of his life in Würzburg, drawn there by German enthusiasts with a taste for Italian music. Platti turned violin sonatas from Corelli's Op Five into concerti grossi, as a way of expanding the usefulness of music that was already justly famous. And one of the three sonata into concerto transformations included here has been given a cornucopian contemporary upscaling through the addition of wind instruments, with lots of burbling and huffing and puffing for horns and bassoons. Along with the arrangements, this disc includes a Cello Concerto in D that's laden with busy scrubbing and excitement, and a bracing G minor Concerto for Platti's own instrument, the oboe.' MICHAEL DERVAN, Irish Times, 30 January 2009, ***** 'It's an interesting question; have the composers who have faded into obscurity done so because they weren t especially good, or because history has dealt them an unfair hand? The Oxford Dictionary of Music devotes a measly twenty-five words to Giovanni Benedetto Platti, and doesn't list any of his works. Indeed, only the oboe and cello concertos on this recording are his unique compositions, the two concerti grossi being arrangements of violin sonatas by Archangelo Corelli. Consequently, I wasn't expecting to be blown away by compositional genius on this disc, so to be enjoying it as much as I am is something of an unanticipated pleasure... This disc's success, though, is really due to the performances from the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin and their violinist director, Georg Kallweit. They play with a light, crisp attack, with just the right amount of edge, and the overall sound fizzes with stylish exuberance. Sebastian Hess on cello and Xenia Löffler on oboe bring their respective concerti to life, dealing effortlessly with the virtuoso passages and bringing out every nuance of feeling in the slower, more introspective movements. Platti may not have completely lit my fire, but this performance has.' Charlotte Gardner, BBC Online, 27 January 2009 'The first-rate sound engineering completes this very engaging recital.' Christopher Price, International Record Review, January 2009
