It was as a virtuoso oboist that the Italian Giovanni Benedetto Platti entered the service of the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg, who had a pronounced taste for musical exoticism. But he soon revealed his gifts as a composer, notably in the works he wrote for his patron's brother Rudolf Franz Erwein, an enthusiastic amateur cellist. His concerti grossi, derived from chamber works by Corelli, show him to be a worthy heir to the great Roman master of the genre.

"The disc offers not just excellent performances but an ear-opening reversal of received opinion." Gramophone [on AAM Berlin]

"The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin play the music with the imaginative fervour of players discovering lost masterpieces, making even the most humdrum of movements swing, swirl or swoon." The Irish Times

“Platti… was a virtuoso oboist: the D minor Largo of his Concerto, tender and melancholy, more than makes up for the rather formulaic cast of the outer movements. Xenia Löffler produces beautifully rounded tone…” Gramophone Magazine, March 2009
