“Few will be disappointed either by the music or the performances. The dance-like character of many of the outer movements is an attractive feature of Tartini’s concertos and the slow movements are affectingly expressive. Good recitals of Tartini are (few) …This can be confidently recommended to specialists and to readers with wider interests.” “The Auvergne Orchestra are not a period instrument ensemble but demonstrate a lively and playful rapport with late baroque music … performances are full of vitality and caprice. Nikolitch is constantly aware of the underlying poetry, above all in slow movements. Sometimes,Tartini would provide an alternative slow movement. Two such concertos are in this programme, and, happily, Nikolitch gives us both (alternatives).” (Gramophone)
