Francesco Geminiani's set of 12 Concerti Grossi without opus number are texturally elaborated versions of the set of 12 Sonatas for Solo Violin, Op.5, composed by his teacher Arcangelo Corelli. As a result they give a richer sound quality to the Corelli originals, enhanced here by the sound of I Musici playing on modern rather than original instruments. The concertino group consists of a string quartet while the ripieno comprises two violins, cello and bass. Geminiani subsequently made similar arrangements of his own violin sonatas Op.4. This instrumental enhancement produces a lovely warm CD of baroque concertos, especially in the hands of I Musici.

These wonderful pieces, adaptations of the equally good Violin Sonatas of Archangelo Corelli (also opus 5) are moving and vibrant to the extreme. I have owned this double CD for many years and come back to it again and again. The final concerto 'La Folia' leaves me in raptured delight. 1 Musici are an excellent ensemble (they also did and excellent Corelli op.6 concerti grossi, though on modern instruments) They keep the pace up, but bring out the full poignancy of the music. Well recommended.
