Concertos by Dell’Abaco, Porpora, Marcello, Tartini & Telemann

£12.00

Founded in 1973 by Trevor Pinnock, The English Concert has been a leading light in the performance of Baroque and Classical music for for over 40 years. Under their present Artistic Director Harry Bicket and with distinguished guest artists they continue to perform with the passion, sophistication and technical mastery established at their creation.

Such is the commitment and passion that their players bring to every performance. Drawn not only from home-grown talent, The English Concert can boast a truly international cast of musicians. Soloists in their own right, and backed-up by scholarly knowledge of style and genre, the close-knit relationship between their musicians makes for a truly special blend of sound. This new recording features the talents of these soloists in performances of Concertii by Telemann, Marcello, Dall’Abaco, Tartini and Porpora.

Performance: ★★★★ Recording: ★★★★★ Here’s that increasing rarity: A Baroque disc with no conceptual axe to grind, no over-arching theme – save for giving the members of The English Concert a concerto moment in the sun – and seemingly out to do little more than delight (which it does so in spades) – BBC Music Magazine

[Harry] directs from the harpsichord, bringing both vitality and cohesion to the performances – Andrew Benson-Wilson
