Review By RJ122662,June 2014

Locatelli’s Concerto Grossi is a vivid collection of the moods of the violin that never loses the liveliness we can expect from a virtuosic player-composer. They’re not violin concertos of course, but they make heavy use of the string section and feature many violin solos, and these really give the overall Opus its character.

Locatelli’s violin glides effortlessly over the whole and produces the feeling of each movement, from the lively opening of No. 1 to the graceful beauty of No. 5’s Largo where the violin works in concert with an organ.

The movements are constantly shifting as Locatelli paints a colourful abstract that never allows you to fall into complacency. The movement following the Largo of No. 5 is a racing Allegro with the strings rolling along more....

I have been thoroughly enjoying it, and will have a more in-depth review after more time with the music.

Review By Classic CD,September 1996

"Capella Istropolitana under its conductor/composer Jaroslav Krecek produces sparkling results...The sound quality does full justice to these admirable performances."
