For sheer affability of sentiment, good humour and harmonic warmth this set of concertos beats almost any other that I know. Perhaps there is nothing memorable here, certainly taken as a whole there are fewer song-like melodies than can be found in Albinoni's Opp. 7 and 9, for instance, but from the occasion when I first heard these concertos, about 12 years ago, they have remained firmly in my affection. Albinoni's Op. 10 Concertos, 12 of them, and all for strings, were discovered comparatively recently in Sweden by a Dutch musicologist, I think.
