Description: The works of this Veronese composer, resident in Vienna for almost all his life, are a compendium of the stylus fantasticus. The last Bertali recital we offered (two months ago) used only string instruments. If you're into variety, you'll find a cornet employed here in all but one of the works. Le Concert Brisé; William Dongois (cornet, cornettino, mute cornet).
