Catalogue Number: 09V019
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Platti himself was proficient on several instruments but he retained a special affection for the cello, producing as many as 28 cello concertos – even more than Vivaldi – and other works including the 12 accompanied cello sonatas on this album. These are divided into two groups of six, both dated 1725, music of great melodic invention and virtuosity. 2 CDs. Francesco Galligioni (cello), L’Arte del Arco.
