4 stars This album is a rare case when re-make is even better than originals (IMHO, of course). It is recorded better, sung and played better, it contains probably all necessary tracks from both original albums and it has the inspiration of live performance (please don't worry, you won't hear audience's clapping, coughing etc).

The year 2001 was the 30-th anniversary of "Concerto Grosso №1" and signore De Scalzi with friends find the best way to celebrate this event. Maurizio Salvi, ex New Trolls keyboardist (he also directed the orchestra and played keyboards), and Vittorio De Scalzi, New Trolls founder member, made orchestrations and arrangements for this record.

Both Concerti Grossi, as well as tracks 5, 10, 11, played with Orchestra Filarmonica di Torino. And I can say songs "In St. Peter's Day" and "Una miniera" suit to the mood of Concerti perfectly.

Last two tracks, "Preludio/ Signore, Io Sono Irish" (originally from NT debut album) and "Wings" (new song, written by De Scalzi to the lyrics of great William Shakespeare) were recorded in studio with Ensemble Camillo Sivori (3 violins, viola, cello), but sound in perfect harmony with live material.

Excellent performance. This album really deserves better recognition. Highly recommended, no matter have you heard original "Concerto Grosso №1" and "Concerto Grosso №2" albums or not.

4 stars (only because it is a re-make, otherwise it would be all 5 stars).
