Description: The cello sonatas of this Roman musician and cellist (no date given in the notes) are apparently early examples of the then-new genre, still late baroque in form although the expressivity of the music and techique required to achieve it are pre-classical and also proof that Costanzi was as good a player as contemporary witnesses attested. Giovanni Sollima (cello), Monika Leskovar (second cello), Arianna Art Ensemble.
