5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance of a baroque masterpiece July 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The concerto grosso is best listened to as a regular concerto instead of as a chamber piece like a string quartet. All of these concerto are from opus two and three and belong in everyone's colection (not just baroque fans). I am no expert on classical music and this is the only performance that I have heard. The capella I. give a spirited peformance making each ove the over ten peices highly individual. I liked this disc so much I plan to buy the other two Geminiani discs by Naxos. Like I said I have not heard other perfornces but I can't imagine it could be better done. pPlease excuse typos I have a neurolocal disease

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar performance March 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Geminiani was born in 1687 in Lucca, spent nearly all of his time in England where his music was readily received and was a student of Corelli, one of my favorite Baroque Italian composers. Up until purchasing this volume of concerti grossi by Geminiani, I have only heard bits and pieces of his compositions. This music is typical of the genre and does not disappoint - Baroque is a wonderful accompaniment when doing something creative. I have Geminiani, Corelli, Vivaldi, Teleman, and Handel on a very long playlist when I sit down to write for extended periods...it helps me to focus and the writing flows. I also like this set in combination with Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine, polyphony - vespers and Latin Masses...I take it with me on the iPod for long runs with my dogs. Again, the music alters my perspective in such a way that even though I may be physically exerting myself, the mind is free to contemplate other things and not my blistered feet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought this ! April 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this new for around five bucks on the internet, Sounds good and typical Naxos budget quality. Great cd to put on and listen to in the background while I work. Sounds a bit like Vivaldi. Good violin sound with feeling. Well rehearsed and tight.

Geminiani studied under Scarlatti and Corelli, so if you like their music you should be pleased with this. I am.

Good day !

5.0 out of 5 stars More beautiful music from a master of the form March 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Leave it again to Naxos to revive in elegant fashion the works of a rarely heard and even less often recorded master: Francesco Geminiani. This suite of concerti grossi will delight any aficionado of Baroque period music: warm, delightful, enchanting, lively, surprising, sometimes suspenseful, and generally moving. Given the over play of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" and even Bach's "Brandenburg Concertos", we've had little chance to appreciate other masters like Geminiani. Acquire this music, listen to the 38 tracks of beautiful music, and enrich your soul.
