Early-Classical keyboard sonatas by a northItalian contemporary of Beethoven, much esteemed in his day and now almost unknown.

Brilliant Classics has long specialised in illuminating the music of composers who are largely lost to posterity – especially from Italy, and especially from the 17th and 18th centuries. Here is another name to conjure with and to quicken the blood of collectors eager to add another name to their shelves: Ferdinando Turrini, born in the town of Salò in 1845. His death date is much more uncertain – between 1812 and 1829 – but he passed away in Brescia, where he had become a much esteemed teacher, organist, master of music and composer.

Blindness afflicted Turrini in his late 20s, but it appears not to have stemmed the flow of an output that ranged from operas to sacred and instrumental music. Nearly all of it is now lost to us, and what survives does so almost exclusively in manuscript. In fact the six keyboard sonatas dedicated to the Genovese patrician Carlo Spinola were printed during Turrini’s lifetime, whereas the other six sonatas on Michele Barchi’s new recording, dedicated to the Venetian nobleman Vincenzo Fini, have come down to us in handwritten copies.

The two-movement ‘Spinola’ sonatas are lively and imaginative enough, but it is in the Fini sonatas that a kinship with Turrini’s contemporary Beethoven becomes evident. These works far transcend their galant context, and could equally well be performed on the fortepiano, composed as they were on the cusp of keyboardinstrument history. The style that one contemporary described as ‘dolce patetico’ (‘sweet and full of feeling’) is particularly evident in the intensity of the slow movements: for instance, in the ‘Adagio ad imitazione del Violoncello’ of the Sonata No.5.

Michele Barchi is an experienced earlymusic keyboard musician who has worked with the likes of the late Claudio Abbado and with Riccardo Muti. Among his recordings is a contribution to the compendious ‘Bach 2000’ edition issued by Warner Classics. This album marks his debut on Brilliant Classics.
