Twelve years younger than Bach and Handel, Giovanni Benedetto Platti left us a collection of nine Concerti per il cembalo obligato which rank not only among the very early examples of composition for keyboard instrument and strings, but also and above all, the first specimens especially conceived for the fortepiano, the new instrument invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori. Billiant soloist and regular keyboard player of Zefiro, Luca Guglielmi offers us, for the first time on period instruments three brilliant and foreseeing piano concertos, interspersed with the large-scale Piano Sonata in C minor, a very widespread composition at the time, and the baroque Sonata for oboe, with a special appearence by Paolo Grazzi. An astonishing music from a composer who deserves to be recognized as one of the greatest of his time..

"... In this program the fortepiano is the solo instrument in three concertos and one sonata and the basso continuo in one oboe sonata. The pieces are well chosen and the program put otgether with contrasts of key and timbre that work well... Here we have not only a beautifully-voiced instrument but also a very fine recording. Both these factos certainly contribute to the enjoyment of this very fine program..."
