During the 1990s, Collegium Musicum 90 and Simon Standage released several volumes of Albinoni concertos, which proved popular with critics and public alike. The concertos were released as discs of single oboe concertos, double oboe concertos, and string concertos. In this re-issue on the Chaconne label, the concertos are presented in opus number order, showing the contrasting colours and tonalities of the concertos as they originally appeared.  
 
Dating back to the second decade of the eighteenth century, Albinoni’s twenty-four Concerti a cinque, Opp. 7 and 9  – eight for a single oboe, eight for two oboes, and eight for strings alone – were the earliest such works by an Italian composer to be published. Here the oboe functions, in its relationship with the strings, almost like a singer. The fact that the composer entitled these works ‘Concerti con oboe’ (with oboe), not ‘per oboe’ (for oboe), signifies that the strings (and in particular the first violin) play a role nearly as important as the wind instrument. An interesting contrast between the opus numbers can be found within the double oboe concerto form, with those belonging to Op. 7 boasting an almost Vivaldian vigour and much variety in texture, while the later works are consistently larger in scale, and more regular in form. Among string concertos, Op. 9 No. 7 is the most elaborate concerto for solo violin by Albinoni, and Op. 9 No. 10 the last example of its type in the composer’s œuvre. 
 
Founded by Simon Standage and the late Richard Hickox, Collegium Musicum 90 has a well-established reputation for its performances of baroque and classical music using period instruments, its repertoire ranging from chamber pieces to large-scale works for choir and orchestra. Under its exclusive contract with Chandos Records, Collegium Musicum 90 has made more than sixty critically acclaimed CDs. The ensemble is joined here by the two oboe soloists Catherine Latham and Anthony Robson. Internationally recognised as a leader in the field of performance on historical oboes, Robson is Principal with both Collegium Musicum 90 and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. 
 

"...The sound is spectacular, and performances as good as you are going to hear by artists long established in the genre, and I can’t think of a better way to spend three hours—and they go by quickly!"     *****

Steven Ritter - Audiophile Audition.com - 14 January 2014


"... I am very fond of these concertos ...Even if you don’t agree with me that Albinoni was the better composer than Vivaldi, these concertos will still give you enormous pleasure."

Jerry Dubbins - Fanfare - September/October 2013


“…The music is very fine … the performances are strong … Both oboists command an expressive range of timbres and textures, sometimes with a graceful florid warmth and languid held notes (in 7:3 with soft caressing strings), sometimes chirping almost like curlews (Adagio of 9:11) with a delicate liveliness that is very attractive…”

Catherine Moore – American Record Guide – September/October 2013


"... the playing is both technically and stylistically always appropriate."

Ian Graham-Jones - Early Music Review - June 2013
