A stunning new recording of the famous Christmas concertos by Corelli and Locatelli, together with beautiful but lesser-known works presented by Cappella Gabetta.

The Baroque ensemble Cappella Gabetta was founded by the cellist Sol Gabetta and her brother, the violinist and conductor Andrés Gabetta, and within only a short time has evolved into one of the finest ensembles currently before the public. Its members are friends and are drawn from such prestigious ensembles as Il Giardino Armonico, the Basel Chamber Orchestra and other existing groups. Their early recordings for Sony Classical and dhm have already been highly praised. For their new album they have recorded a particularly attractive collection of works for Advent and Christmas. Christmas Concertos showcases two of the best-loved Italian Christmas concertos by Corelli and Locatelli in new benchmark recordings skilfully combined with Vivaldi’s Violin Concerto in E major (Il riposo) and three atmospheric Christmas works by lesser-known composers: Angelo Ragazzi’s Sonata a quattro op.1 no.12 (“Pastorale”), Lorenzo Gaetano Zavateri’s Concerto a pastorale and Giuseppe Valentini’s Sinfonia per il santissimo Natale. The result is an atmospheric “Italian” Christmas CD presented from an appealing angle.
