Bavarian Radio termed this programme of unique arrangements which Rinaldo Alessandrini and his Concerto Italiano ensemble presented last year an “intellectual and sensuous pleasure”. And this is exactly what the Italian Baroque experts have achieved with the variety of fascinating sounds in their arrangements. Bach’s variations are well suited to different scorings and sound colourations; there is no need for additional notes to lend the Goldberg Variations either dancelike swing or painful sadness. This exceptional ensemble’s musicians who have achieved three Gramophone Awards demonstrate that they are outstanding interpreters with Rinaldo Alessandrini as their justly highly prized artistic leader.
