A wonderful disc. Mahler 9 Blomstedt Distinguished performance. Just when I had put my Christmas selection to bed for the year, still through the cloven skies they come. There are only two other recordings of the Ragazzi sonata and the Zavateri and Valentini are both sole recordings.

Before the Linn recording my choice for the Corelli Op. Pinnock, who rounds off the collection with the Corelli, also obtains a greater sense of the magic of Christmas than Gabetta and his team.
Corelli's Christmas Concerto
With no benchmarks in mind I found myself much less critical of the performances. The recording is rather close, making this small ensemble sound larger, but otherwise good. I have some issues with the booklet. The track list correctly gives the dates of Giovanni Valentini, a Greek contemporary of Monteverdi, but the composer of the work here is Giuseppe Valentini, like Locatelli a student of Corelli. Even on the basis that his music is little known, the confusion is — confusing.
There are other recommendable recordings of Christmas Concertos. Just avoid the Karajan.

He later turned his attention to the creation of a form that has exerted a lasting influence over English music, the sacred oratorio. Of his compositions in this form, Messiah is by far the best known. The so-called Pastoral Symphony , which in Handel's score is headed by the word "pifa", a reference to the Italian shepherd pipe, is used with dramatic appropriateness as part of the story of Christmas. Manfredini and Locatelli were both Italian violinist-composers, in the tradition of Corelli.
The former was a pupil of Torelli in Bologna, where he was employed, later moving to Pistoia where he was director of music at the Cathedral of St.
Philip from until his death in His first set of Concerti grossi was published in Bologna in , a second in and a third, to which the present Concerto with its Christmas pastorale belongs, in Locatelli, a native of Bergamo, settled in Amsterdam in , after an earlier career as a virtuoso performer. His twelve Opus Concerti grossi 1 , published in Amsterdam in , follow closely the model of Corelli's twelve, the eighth also a Christmas Concerto , with a final pastoral movement to justify the title.
An innovation was the inclusion of a viola in the concerti no group, a practice followed by other composers of Locatelli's generation.
