WorksConcerti grossi (12), op.1
ConductorGottfried von der Goltz
By offering us a single CD of just six of these Op.1 Concerti grossi, published in 1721 when Locatelli was in his mid-twenties, Freiburg Baroque Orchestra allow us to imagine that they have selected the ones they really believe in. It also enables them to start the disc with its most enchanting music, the first movement of Concerto No 11, in which a glorious solo violin cantilena soars soulfully and searchingly over a gently chugging orchestral accompaniment. It is a gripping, haunting opening and the promise it offers is duly realised in the superb music-making that follows. Such quality is only what we have come to expect from the Freiburgers, of course. Here they present us with a hearteningly full, satisfyingly fibrous string sound, together with all their usual hallmarks of fine ensemble and naturally lively and intelligent musicianship. First-rate Baroque concertos in first-class performances. - Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
