Really rather good

Wherever the Kaunas Chamber Orchestra comes from, they are excellent in the Baroque repertory — possessing a fine sense of nobilmente mixed with a lively sense of rhythm. The Marcello Concert Grossi may not be quite as fine as Corelli’s or Handel’s opp. 6, but it is certainly the equal of Torelli’s op. 8, Avison’s Scarlatti-inspired or Geminiani’s opp. 2-5. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed by the sound as indicated by another reviewer.
