Albinoni: Oboe Concerti Vol.2 - The London Virtuosi, Georgiadis

Tomaso Albinoni
Oboe Concerti Vol. 2
Anthony Camden, The London Virtuosi, John Georgiadis
Naxos 8.553002

The London Virtuosi use modern instruments, but their playing is fresh and refined and the digital recording is natural and beautifully balanced. The calibre of Anthony Camden’s solo contribution is readily shown in slow movements, matched by Georgiadis’s rapt, sensitive accompaniments. On the first disc Camden’s excellent colleague is Julia Girdwood, but for the two other collections Alison Alty takes over, and the partnership seems even more felicitous, with the two instruments blended quite perfectly. Also included is a Sinfonia arranged by Camden a Sinfonia concertante. This series can be strongly recommended on all counts.
