The concerto grosso form was popularized by Corelli, and Locatelli’s Op 1 is a marvellous example of the genre:
its solid craftsmanship, imaginative textures and exciting virtuosity bringing it into the top rank. These works are
ravishingly performed here by The Raglan Baroque Players, Nicholas Kraemer and soloist Elizabeth Wallfisch.
‘Glorious … stunning performances … a marvellous release by any standards’ (Classic CD)
