Description: Almost nothing is known about Cattaneo’s first 20 years except that he was from northern Italy. Stylistically, he drew from the musical language of his environment, whereby echoes of Vivaldi can be discerned, as well as of Hasse, who set the tone in Dresden from where three anonymous orchestral pieces for strings also originate. With the combination of Italian sinfonia and French overture suite, they are exemplary of the typical reception of the so-called mixed taste of Dresden. L’Arpa Festante; Anton Steck (violin).
