Quote from: Daverz on January 30, 2021, 02:23:40 PMI like the sweeter string sound of a non-HIP band, particularly in Albinoni. A lot of HIP groups have strings that sound too scrawny and make that white-toned whiny sound that is supposedly historical (did our ancestors really wax rhapsodic about that sound?).

Quote from: aligreto on February 25, 2021, 01:57:28 PMAlbinoni: 12 Concertos & Sonatas Op. 2 [I Solisti Veneti] This is, for me, wonderful and very appealing music. This is consistent throughout the set. The music is delightfully melodic. The slow movements are richly harmonic and the fast movements have a good sense of forward momentum. The ensemble is not heavy handed in its interpretation or its performance yet it still produces the requisite gravitas for this music. I find that the ensemble sounds suitably small or chamber sized but which still produces a full and well balanced orchestral sound for this period of music. This is an old but very satisfying set.
QuoteAlbinoni, Tomaso (1671-1751) - Oboe Concertos, Op. 7 & 9 w/ Stefan Schilli on a modern instrument; Nicol Matt/Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra - wonderful performances, but for period instrument fans, I also own the first two of three volumes (bottom row) w/ Anthony Robson and Catherine Latham on oboes, plus Simon Standage & Collegium Musicum 90, which have the two Opus works 'mixed up' - the remainder are on a third disc - this has been re-packaged (and re-arranged) into a 3-CD set (top row, 2nd/3rd pics) but is not a bargain, e.g. $37 on Amazon USA - might just get a DL to complete my 'period set', but that 're-arrangement' is attractive - drat! :laugh: Dave

Quote from: Spenserian on July 19, 2022, 05:43:43 AMA brand new recording of Albinoni's Op.3, the "world premiere recording with period instruments", as opposed to the world premiere recording with modern instruments by Ensemble Benedetto Marcello. Sounds good so far.
Quote from: Que on July 19, 2022, 06:25:20 AMAgreed. I streamed it and liked it as well!
Quote from: SonicMan46 on July 19, 2022, 06:43:11 AMWell, I'll have to take a listen also! DaveP.S. a 2-CD set, $24 on Amazon USA with S/H; $17 on JPC - not on BRO (yet?)
Quote from: SonicMan46 on July 20, 2022, 07:30:40 AMWell, I took a listen on Spotify this morning and really enjoyed the performances done in 2021 in Florence - returned to JPC and the 2-disc set for me 'across the pond' was $14 w/ the Euro on par w/ the dollar at the moment. Dave
