ALESSANDRO SCARLATTI (1660-1725): 12 Sinfonie di concerto grosso
Catalogue Number: 06Q017
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: From 1715, this set of concerti grossi (really eight recorder concertos and four concerti grossi) features one or two flutes, oboe and, in the second work, a trumpet in addition to the strings, providing a happily varied sound picture of backward-looking counterpoint and forward-looking melody. First recording at budget-price. 2 CDs. Capella Tiberina; Alexandra Nigito (harpsichord).
