If you do nothing else, download each minor key concerto of Opus 2 and 3. Geminiani's slow movements are languid and full of noble melancholy; his contrapuntal subjects are tense and angular; his fugato entries are often startling in their abruptness. I like this performance somewhat better than the Naxos, although the Naxos has opus 7 as well. What is important is that the contrapuntal bottom instruments be fronted in the mix. I judge this performance superior on that regard. The Naxos is more up tempo, and handles staccato passages such as the concluding gigues somewhat better. Also, in this version each track contains a whole concerto.
