Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alessandro Stradella (1639-1682) was one of the most productive and popular musicians of his generation. The majority of his works are for voices but this set documents Stradella’s other side. It comprises 12 sonatas for violin and continuo, nine sonatas for two violins and continuo and ‘miscellaneous’ compositions in a joyful cornucopia of styles and instrumental combinations, all clearly demonstrating Stradella’s musicianship shining through, even when no text is present. Newton Classics regulars Mario Ferraris and Angelo Ephrikian are soaked in the idiom and offer classic, elegant interpretations. Several works are otherwise unavailable on record.
