Solo sonatas written in Italy in the early decades of the 17th century dazzle with originality, imaginative impulses and instrumental virtuosity – aspects that have all been taken into consideration when choosing pieces for this attractive compilation of Italian Baroque violin music. Along with violin sonatas by Italian maestri Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi and Tomasi Albinoni, this volume offers the chance to get to know lesser-known composers of this genre such as Carlo Farina and Michele Mascitti, who introduced Italian violin music to Germany and France. Our Urtext edition glows with a variety of Baroque gems from that era.
