Here are two concerts for Carlo Graziani's cello and orchestra, rarely listening to the artist's Berlin period, until 1772. These are two concerts of pleasing listening, in the galante-classical style with a fairly virtuoso cello, which is particularly pronounced in cadences. Marco Testori, specialist of the period and of the historical-informed execution practice, gives us a fine interpretation, well supported by the orchestra of the musicians of St. Pelagia, directed by Vanni Moretto. Good, though a bit tight, the booklet that accompanies the cd and clean and detailed sound reproduction.
The reissue game continues. All of this material has been available more or less continuously in recent years, with the exception of Frühbeck's Three-Cornered Hat, which only resurfaced quite recently on an EMI twofer accompanied by Atlántida. The reason it reappears here, evidently, stems from the fact that this two-disc set contains all of Victoria de Los Angeles' stereo Falla recordings; and despite the fact that she sings for about 60 seconds in total in "Hat", it's always a pleasure to hear Frühbeck's big-hearted, expansively Romantic but always exciting way with the music.
