This fascinating album includes Torelli's Concerto Op.8, a landmark opus worthy of special attention, for it influenced a whole new generation of composers including Vivaldi, Telemann and Bach.

‘... the period performances here are first class. The rather more conventional Trumpet Concertos are also in confident hands, and the accompaniments throughout are characteristically stylish and the Chandos recording first rate.' The Penguin Guide

‘For what will hopefully be the first of several, Simon Standage has chosen to mix seven of the concertos from the composer's Op. 8 set with a concerto and two Sinfonias involving trumpets. The printed set includes concertos for one and two violins with continuo, and Standage is well partnered by Catherine Weiss in the latter... I look forward very much to the next instalment!' Early Music Review



Giuseppe Torelli was a native of Verona. He moved to Bologna (a place with a strong claim to be the birthplace of the concerto) in the early 1680s, and was elected to the Accademia filarmonica on 27 June 1684. From time to time he played the viola in the San Petronio cappella, but was often absent on freelance work as a violinist (he was paid for only fifteen days work in 1691). He is known to have visited Amsterdam in 1697 or 1698, and was briefly Konzertmeister at the court of Georg Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenberg-Ansbach, where he taught the violin to the young Johann Georg Pisendel, later Konzertmeister of the famous Dresden orchestra. After a stay in Vienna for a few months in the winter of 1699-1700 he returned to Bologna, where he spent his last years.

His Op. 2 - twelve ‘concerti da camera', published in 1686 are still in the early Bolognese trio sonata format, but the six ‘concerti à quattro' of Op. 5 (1692) are a real landmark, being the first printed instrumental music that calls explicity for more than one player to a part. Surprisingly, however, they are laid out for four-part string orchestra with no solo passages at all. The idea that a concerto should feature one or more soloists was something that Torelli developed later, at first rather tentatively in Op.l 6 (1698), in which only two of the twelve concertos have brief solo episodes for violin, and above all in Op. 8, published posthumously in 1709 by his brother Felice. This set has six fully developed three-movement solo violin concertos and six for two violins and proved his most influential work.
