This recording of Francesco Maria Veracini's orchestral concerti is yet another of Reinhard Goebel's and Musica Antiqua Köln's outstanding performances of the music of the Dresden Court. The effect a period-instrument performance has on the quality of the recording can only be described as "electrifying". Veracini combines good Dresden solidity with wisping, virtuosic Italian brio and gusto. A true fiery rival for the stale, traditional repertoire of Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel. Another marvellous, incredible feat to the honorable credit of the performers and a genuine gift to the friends of music. END

The best compliment I can pay these five overtures (concerti grossi, really) by Franceco Maria Veracini is to say they have a Handelian melodiousness about them that raises them above similar efforts by Geminiani, for instance. Maybe it's the fact that Veracini wrote these works for Dresden, where they may have liked a good tune more than Italian theatrics. Whatever the cause, these works are clouded by few minor-key excursions (except in No. 6 in B-flat major, which seems almost to spend more of its time in related minor keys than in the major key) and have an overall bonhomie and even playfulness that bring them far closer to Handel's idiom than to that of Vivaldi or Bach. Perhaps the most winningly Handelian of all is No. 3. Incidentally, No. 6, the darkest of the lot, is also the least attractive and has a downright grating final minuet; this piece may have been a failed experiment by Veracini.

If the Overtures aren't great music, I think they are very good music, and Goebel makes a very good case for them, with the exception of No. 6. Then again, you may not agree with my assessment; you may find No. 6 winning as well. In any event, this disc is certainly worth a try, and Veracini is a composer worth getting to know.

These very delightful and pleasant "Overtures" - written by the not much recorded Italian composer F. M. Veracinis (1690-1768)- are well performed by Reinhard Goebel and his period-performance specialist orchestra Musica Antiqua Cologne. A winning and lively recording. If you are a great fan of baroque music this is the CD to go for.

A wonderful CD for anyone who likes Baroque Music. The playing of Francessco Veracini's Overtures by Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Köln is energetic and well done. Another in a long list of winning performances for this splendid group of musicians! If you have any doubts about this CD, listen to the music samples Amazon provides.

The music as it has already been noted is of a different flavor than with what we are likely well- acculturated from the composers history has smiled more widely upon. The interpretations are thoughtful with some definite interpretive license that supports the music. MAK had always been a class act under Goebel.

All that said the quality of the recorded sound makes listening tiring and tarnishes the music. A number of DG's 1990s recordings in 4D format sound colder, harsher, and need some warmth. combine that sound with the church acoustic and MAK's aggressive interpretation and you get a very grating result.

It's too bad - we can always listen to this as background music - but it deserved better!
