This is a beautifully played disc. The Neapolitan composers of the early 18th century were famous for their operas. The city of Naples had four music conservatories and officials were on the lookout for promising pupils. This disc celebrates Neapolitan instrumental music and reveals what a wonderful gift of melody they had developed as a distinct group. Although their music sounds like Vivaldi there are subtle differences in the way melodies are treated with the Neapolitans having a bit more color. This CD includes the music of Francesco Durante, his famous pupil Giovanni Batista Pergolesi and Leonardo Leo.

This disc begins with a marvelous violin concerto by Pergolesi, who himself was a virtuoso. Cast in three movements, the outer one has brisk and contrasting melodies while the middle movement resembles a sad and reflective aria. This is followed by a Concerto in G minor by Durante characterized by graceful melodies sometimes with a surprising harmonic shift. A very short Sonata by Pergolesi follows played here by violin and cello. The score was found among other instrument works written two staves and might have been intended for keyboard.

A Concerto for four violins and string by Leonardo Leo follows. Leo was much more active as an operatic composer but, like all Neapolitan composers, turned his hand to instrumental works too. The concerto is in four movements beginning with a playing by the full orchestra accentuated by violin solos. The second movement has brisk themes with the violins engaging in a dialogue. A sweetly melancholy slow movement follows with a return to bright melodies in the finale. This work is followed by a highly interesting concerto by Durante subtitled "La Pazzia" (Folly). This concerto is akin to Vivaldi's opus 8 for its invention and contrasts. The opening is much like a Vivaldi concerto with its agitated theme which is followed by a more improvisatory section. There is a wide variety of contrasting music, something like C.P.E. Bach's Sinfonias in the quirky display of music.

A final Pergolesi selection follows, a Sinfonia in F major scored for strings and continuo. This work owes much to Alessandro Scarlatti, who helped develop the musical form. The music is light and graceful with the strings playing highly ornamental passages. The closing work is Durante's Concerto No. 5 characterized by sparkling outer movements and a reflective inner Largo movement.

This is a CD that lovers of Baroque music will treasure. While the music is strongly reminiscent of Vivaldi there is an element of invention that sets it apart. The music could not be better played or recorded.

The Baroque era in Italy was known for its "concerto factories" that cranked out concerto-after-concerto - Vivaldi being the most notable example having over five hundred of such works. But, here is a most refreshing, rather unique and delightfully different collection of violin concerto music of that era. I would echo the positive review previous stated and recommend this disc to the lover of Baroque music - even those who are weary of yet another concerto. Everything about it is superb - the unique compositions, the playing of Elizabeth Wallfish and team and the Hyperion sound quality. It is a disc that is easy and enjoyable to hear often. Additionally, the four-pages of annotation will give the listener a fine introduction to these lesser-known Italian composers. Compositions - 5 stars; Performance - 5 stars; Sound quality - 5 stars.

I love this stuff! The modern classical concerto was developing during this time and the Italian influence can be traced through these pieces. All three composers represented on this disc are very creative and their music has immediate appeal. Add the alert playing of the Raglan Baroque Players and Elizabeth Wallfisch's light, singing violin and you have irresistible entertainment. This music breezes along like a sparkling brook and a warm Spring afternoon, one delightful piece follows the other. The program is very well chosen and the order intelligently presented so that the composers alternate. This way, no one voice is heard in succession keeping the flow moving and fresh to the ear. The range is surprising too, "La Pazzia" by Durante is an intentional foray into the unusual and the listener is kept in suspense over what wild idea is coming next. Music lovers will be delighted. 5 stars for everything, music, performance, sound, presentation, production, engineering and artwork. I just love this CD!

Why?..if this Cd is out of print, I would like to know. Bought this CD during December holidays 2010 as I was having a revival of interest in Pergolese's music. This is one of the best CDs I own of the late Baroque period. Buy it if you can find it; you will not be disappointed. As a reviewer already stated, "Beyond Vivaldi." A true treasure.
