(Excerpt from my first review on 1-9-2017) 

"Perhaps the most structurally striking elements of the concertos are the technical accomplished contributions of Igor Ruhadze. Flashy fluid perfection, webs of double stopped complexities, he smoothly brings off Locatelli's occasional ferociously idiomatic modulations. It's a full house deliciousness by this varied palette of continuo colour display from his colleagues. The rich variety of Locatelli's music is so well portrayed that I come to the conclusion that this is a reference set par excellance"
