Description: Hot on the heels of last month’s Tactus disc of Giardini’s chamber music comes this scintilllating set of concertos published in 1772 whose relaxed elegance and sprightly finales are the epitome of Classical galanterie. A must-have for devotees of the Classical violin concerto, the disc is punctuated by orchestral works by Giardini’s close London associates. 2 CDs. Giuliano Carmignola (violin), Accademia dell’Annuciata; Riccardo Doni.
