NICOLA PORPORA (1686-1768): 6 Cello Sonatas.
Catalogue Number: 12S017
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Most of Porpora’s output was for the voice, so it should come as no surprise that this set of attractive sonatas abounds in melodic movements which sound and sing more like arias than strictly instrumental, ‘abstract’ compositions and try to emulate the “vox humana”, expressing the human emotions through instrumental virtuosity and phrasing. Adriano Maria Fazio (cello), Katarzyna Solecka (violin), Anna Camporini (continuo cello), Pedro Alcacer (theorbo), Lorenzo Profita (harpsichord).
