Notes and Editorial Reviews

Giovanni Battista Martinis sacred compositions are considered to be of absolute value for their formal rigor and teaching counterpoint, whereas the works for keyboard instruments, mostly composed for the regligious service at St. Francis chapel in Bologna, already anticipate that gallant taste, with th epractice of teh accompanied melody, which will become trendy at the end of the 18th century. The sonatas included on this album, many of which have eloquent titles don't go beyond that context and if this feature can result in a small interest for such works, they certainly deserve more attention for their historical value.
