Catalogue Number: 08L024
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Born into a famous family of musicians, Veracini was a gifted violin virtuoso and his music is characterized by the unexpected: density of motivic elaboration, a sometimes bewildering profusion of musical ideas, a careening from German to Italian styles within a single piece, etc. This pioneering recording helped reintroduce an original composer (and character) to baroque collectors.
