Description: All of these concertos were written for noblewomen of slightly better than amateur talent, meaning that they are at their best in their slow movements where Paisiello's lyrical cantilenas are quite attractive. Concerto No. 8, the finest, can seem to foreshadow Mozart's piano concertos. 2 CDs. Pietro Spada (piano), Orchestra da Camera di Santa Cecilia. Original 1994 Arts releases.
