’This curious conclomeration of concertos is a celebratio of contrasts." Thus begins Kah-Ming Ng’sintroduction to this collection of works from the 18th Century. Although none of the composers featured may be familiar, each work has been picked for it’s fine technical skill and illuminaing sound, taking inspiration from 18th century definition of ’curious’ as being rare, excellent and fine’. Includes works by Paradis, Reichenauer, Berlin, Pepusch, Hertel, Croft and Baldassari.

Charivari Agréable have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading early music ensembles - in 2010 they collaborated with The King’s Singers on an album of Pachelbel’s Vespers, currently their best-selling on Signum, after it featured heavily on BBC Radio 3.

For those who know Pachelbel only through the Canon, this disc will be revelatory ... Each piece is beautifully served by the ensemble." - The Sunday Times
 

"...These concertos are off the beaten track, but first class music all the same..."

Loewen - American Record Guide - November/December 2011


"...Ng plays the solo harpsichord with verve and wit... Another excellent soloist is the oboist Geoffrey Coates, whose warm, flexible tone has a  lovely burnished quality in the very Vivaldian concerto by Reichenauer..."

Andrew O’Connoer - International Record review - July/August 2011
