Catalogue Number: 12S018
Reference: CDS 7775
Description: The works of the present release embrace an arc of almost thirty years, spanning from the 1730s to the 1760s. All of them have initial themes that are easily remembered because of some peculiar traits and of the incisiveness of their motives, the apex of expressiveness being in the slow movement. The Allegros that follow, often passionately vigorous, are dominated by vivid colors and very interesting rhythmic and harmonic variety, and permeated by refined technique. Črtomir Šiškovič (violin), Luca Ferrini (harpsichord).
