Catalogue Number: 10T016
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: These concertos are highly skillful works in which Baroque polyphony is infused with Neapolitan Galant elements, as well as certain unusual melodic, rhythmic and harmonic twists, foreshadowing the Sturm und Drang style. Only eight of the twelve are contained on this live recording but a bonus premiere of a work not part of the published dozen is added. Ensemble Imaginaire; Cristina Corrieri.
