Archiv Pro­duk­tion 477 7371 (2 CDs) The sound is so dif­fer­ent you could be for­given for won­der­ing if this could pos­si­bly be the same orches­tra and con­duc­tor that per­form on the Orches­tra Mozart/ Clau­dio Ab­bado sym­phonies disc. Here the use of pe­riod in­stru­ments makes for an al­to­gether leaner, more sinewy sound, and, of course, the mu­sic is very dif­fer­ent, too – the vi­o­lin con­cer­tos are the work of a com­poser still in his teens. The high point of the set comes in a later and greater work, the Sin­fo­nia Con­cer­tante for vi­o­lin and vi­ola, where the two soloists man­age mi­nor mir­a­cles of bal­anced ex­pres­sive­ness. Gi­u­liano Carmignola’s play­ing in the ac­tual vi­o­lin con­cer­tos re­veals some ges­tures which sound a lit­tle man­nered. www.tinyurl.com/5b9s4r
