• Carlo Tessarini (1690-1767) received his musical tuition in Venice, probably with Vivaldi and Corelli (whose musical heir he clearly is). He became a famous virtuoso on the violin, travelling Europe like a modern day pop star. He died in Amsterdam, leaving a substantial oeuvre mainly written for his own instrument.
• His sonatas are firmly rooted in the baroque tradition, but already pointing towards the “galante style” of the late 18th century, with an emphasis on belcanto melodies and clear and transparent structures.
• This new recording contains the 6 Violin Sonatas Op. 14 and the 6 Trio Sonatas Op. 9, music written in a brilliant instrumental style, full of Italian vitality.
• Excellent performances by Baroque specialists Valerio Losito and Paolo Perrone(violin), Federico Del Sordo (harpsichord), Carlo Calegari (cello).
