BENEDETTO MARCELLO (1686-1739): 12 Concerti a 5, Op. 1, Sinfonias 1-5.
Catalogue Number: 07O023
Label: Newton Classics
Description: Two reasons for offering this, one of them perverse: 1) Marcello's concerti and symphonies are surprising and significant contributions to the development of both these genres and 2) these almost 50-year old recordings are so totally divorced from anything to do with authentic performance that they're a guilty pleasure, like wallowing in a Stokie baroque transcription. 3 CDs. I Solisti di Milano; Angelo Ephrikian. Original 1965 Telefunken and 1967 Rivo Alto LP releases.
