Format:Audio CD
Trevor Pinnock's recording of Corelli's Op. 6 Concerti grossi will not be to all tastes. Those raised on traditional instrument recordings by such as Max Goberman/Vienna Sinfonietta (Odyssey LPs, circulated in the 1970s) or Paul Angerer/Southwest German Chamber Orchestra (Vox) may not like the clipped articulation and fast tempos Pinnock uses. But the English Concert is a joy to hear: and can THEY PLAY! The allegros sizzle with joy and tension (in the minor key movements) and I find myself unable to resist conducting myself to the rhythmic patterns they generate. I think Corelli would be pleased, and I doubt he ever heard this good a performance of his Opus 6 Concertos.

Concerto 8, subtitled "Christmas" may be the most famous Op. 6 Concerto. Pinnock's way with it may seem superficial, and tempos are faster than what I'm used to in this work. But I'm used to recordings of I Musici (Philips), Angerer (Vox), and Shepherd/Cantilena (Chandos). The closing "Pastorale" doesn't seem to have enough time to breathe, but Pinnock is more sensitive to the Baroque performance practice principles where Siciliana and Pastorale movements are played more quickly than 20th century conductors led them, adhering to more Romanticized performance practice.

As a set, I give this high marks, and there is alot of energy and joy without slighting Corelli's music. The recorded sound is also very good, and the strings have a full, rich sound, even with no vibrato and period instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling Corelli on the rocks served by the EC April 21, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was my first exposure to the famed Concerti Grossi of Corelli, though not to Pinnock and his English Concert. The ensemble makes an excellent case for the concerti and makes their high popularity understandable (especially in England, where a full quarter century after their composer's death they were to leave such an impact on 12 Concerti by another bloke named Handel). Many of the tempos are quick but never frantic; the 10th Concerto in C is a particular delight. The interplay between the concertino and the tutti strings is absolutely perfect. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely performances April 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Lovely, energetic, committed performances of these works. Consistent high quality playing throughout. Everything is refined and polished to the nth degree. A great example of orchestral playing in the baroque style. Recording quality leaves nothing to be desired - absolutely clear and transparent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corelli: Master and Commander of Enchanting Melodies March 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In a world dominated by Gabrelli and Vivaldi, Corelli's 12 Concerti Grossi (Op. 6) are gems. The performance of Pinnock and the English Concert is superb and the Archive recording crystal clear and in high fidelity. To the inexperienced ear the components of each piece flow together, yet the distinguishable melodies create a relaxing, enjoyable atmosphere -- either for a listener intent on each note, or as atmosphere while going about the day's business or leisure. Guided to this recording by the soundtrack for the movie "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World," you will be not long into the first of this two CD set before being rewarded for your purchase. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential May 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This recording sits in the same exalted place as Pinnock's Brandenburg Concertos. The combination of Corelli's gorgeous lyrical beauty and Pinnock's intimate, passionate ensemble is just explosive. I never tire of listening to this, and I agree with another reviewer that this disc could win anyone over to the baroque era. And this is the kind of recording that will not offend those that are allergic to period-instrument thinness. I think what I like about Pinnock recordings is that one feels part of the ensemble, and can almost feel the grate of the bow across the strings. Some recordings are great, admirable, etc. This one I would call essential. It says something about Pinnock that so many of his recordings could be called such. And what a value! If you jump on the Pinnock train, try out Handel's Concerti Grossi Op. 6: available as part of the Handel Orchestral Works set.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I would defintely rate this a five star. This is one of the most beautiful Baroque pieces ever written. Anybody who is a beginner to classical music must have this set of concerti. Each movement has very good balance and tempo. Especially the 7th concerto. Trevor Pinnock is awesome at Corelli.
