Editorial Reviews

Pietro Gnocchi (1689 1775) was an Italian composer, choir director, historian,
and geographer of the late Baroque era. In addition to composing an abundance
of eccentrically titled sacred music, all of which remains in manuscript, he
wrote a 25-volume history of ancient Greek colonies.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
From what I can gather, this latest CD is the first of its kind to reach the current recording catalogue of works by Pietro Gnocchi and from eighteenth century Brescia (Italy). Although the composer, no doubt, knew how to write fine music for religious inspiration, this latest CD unfortunately falls short in providing a memorable listening experience. Even though all six works on this disc are well executed and are played with poise, there is a lack of lustre throughout. I can't help wondering if the Ensemble Pian & Forte (comprising of 2 horns, 2 oboes, strings and continuo) and the SATB soloists, who all certainly demonstrate much care in their parts, have been subdued from a more judicious performance by the ensemble's director Bruno Gini.

Whatever the case, I can only warmly welcome this latest release for Gnocchi's introduction to the recording catalogue, the charming efforts of all performers concerned and by the beautifully assembled booklet with its informative biographical sketch and portrait of the composer. Nonetheless, if you are thinking of purchasing this recording for your library, like I have, don't expect memorable delights!
