The idea of devising a set out of three entirely different recordings of two different Sammartinis is a find. Both Giovanni Battista and Giuseppe Francesco Gaspare Melchiorre Baldassare are fine composers who have slipped between the cracks of musical history and deserve more attention from musicians and audiences alike. To assemble these CDs in one group is a wonderful way to introduce the listener to this talented family. Nowadays, the names of the two composers are often confused, as well as with that of Pietro Sammartini, another contemporary Italian master who, although he shared their last name, was not even related to them.


The brothers, whose father was an important oboist in Milan, did well: as dutiful sons, Giovanni and Giuseppe both played the oboe, and in fact Giuseppe achieved fame as one of the very best interpreters of this reed in Europe. Grumpy J. J. Quantz visited Milan in 1726 and wrote a severe assessment of the orchestra, particularly of the wind-players, which he regarded as rather pitiful. He made an exception to Giuseppe Sammartini, whom he considered outstanding. The older Sammartini also received high praise from Frederick the Great`s flute teacher: as a composer, he was deemed “not bad.” In fact Giovanni Sammartini was more than just not bad: Milan’s most celebrated composer, he actively influenced the course of occidental music, gathering the admiration of artists such as J. C. Bach and Haydn. As concerns posterity, he had the bad luck of being a transitional composer, and as such never really received the gratitude deserved for being one of the figures to establish the foundations over which the Classical composers came to build their castles. According to contemporary sources, he was also an accomplished organ-player, and if perhaps not as extraordinary as his brother as an oboist, his abilities were more than passable on that instrument as well.


Appropriately, when playing Giuseppe Sammartini`s Six Solos for Flute, Violin, or Oboe, op. 13, Ensemble J. M. Anciuti made sure the oboe was well represented, featuring Paolo Pollastri, an oboist with a sweet tone and an engaging musical personality. But they also decided to alternate the solo instruments (flute, violin, and oboe each play two sonatas) on this CD, an interesting option well justified by the title of the collection, and which works in favor of the listener. The sonatas retain their unity, while the change in instrumental color brings a new flavor to each successive work. Besides Paolo Pollastri, Claudio Rufa (flute), Stefano Montanari (violin), Gaetano Nasillo (cello), Alberto Santi (bassoon), and Giovanni Losco (harpsichord) show their intimacy with the style and their good rapport with each other. I was only sorry that there was not a bonus work, including all of the musicians playing together. Maybe in the next CD? Anyway, the six musicians involved are accomplished artists, with consistent, clean tones. Intonation is sometimes less than perfect, but overall there is imagination in their playing, with good inflections, nice contrasts, excellent characterization—the switches from minor to major passages are beautifully solved, as are the oppositions between pride and lyricism, enthusiasm and sorrow. The music itself is full of delightful moments, and shows a composer who knew his trade inside and out.


By the way, Joanes Maria Anciuti is certainly a curious choice for the group’s name, one that would be thought of only by true “insiders.” He was a mysterious Italian instrument-maker who got his reputation by making woodwind instruments of a very good quality, many in ivory. But almost nothing is known about his life, and even his name is probably a pseudonym.


More is known about Giuseppe Sammartini`s career, which flourished in London, where he achieved great success as a player and composer and reached financial stability. His chamber music enjoyed immense popularity and outlived him considerably. His set of 12 Sonatas for Two German Flutes (or Violins) with Basso Continuo can be heard in the second CD, performed by ensemble I Fiori Musicali (Maria Giovanni Fiorentino and Marcus Rosa Salva, recorders; Paolo Tognon, bassoon; Pietro Prosser, calichon; and Roberto Loreggian, harpsichord).


The choice of recorders over transverse flutes (indicated in the collection’s title) is justified by the musicians on the basis of the prevailing tonalities (eight of the 12 sonatas are in F Major, the most characteristic of recorder tonalities, and one is in B? Major, again more idiomatic for recorder than flute). Even so, to my ears the timbre suffers. Perhaps I Fiori Musicali could have followed Ensemble J. M. Anciuti’s idea of alternating the solo instruments in the CD, as they did with the ones assigned to the bass. In that sense, it was a good option to use the calichon as soloist in the Ninth Sonata, as well as doubling the bass in some of the other ones. The variation in tone color is certainly nice, and the calichon (or mandora, a sort of lute—don’t feel ignorant; I did not know it, either) really does add special spice to the mixture. In the long run, however, two recorders (especially, as is the case, when playing only major modes, and almost all in the same major mode) become hard on the ear, and the listener would welcome the respite of the more flexible flute tone (especially in the slow movements), or even the more incisive bite of a violin. Still, the sonatas are well played, with good ensemble phrasing and lively inflections.


Giovanni`s music is tackled on the third disc, featuring Ensemble Il Rossignolo (Marica Testi, flute; Maria Paola Cavallini and Raffaele Tisco, violins; Raffaele Sorrentino, cello; and Otaviano Tenerari, conductor and harpsichord). Celebrated during his lifetime, Giovanni Battista was one of the most important figures in Italian music, occupying truly eminent positions in Milan (he was director of music in 11 of the town’s churches!). His notturnos are invariably lovely and full of musical invention, in a style that was frankly modern for his epoch, with Classical features such as syncopated passages and gallant ornaments, fast binary movements and minuet finales. Ensemble Il Rossignolo is a solid group, and the music is performed with enthusiasm and good ensemble fluency.


The occasional raspy tone is not enough to put a damper on the results, nor do the few not-quite-sublime breaths from the flutist (such as the awkward moment 40 seconds into the andante of the Fourth Notturno). I would have been happier, frankly, with a more daring interpretation, emphasizing the surprises and musical oddities of the compositions. But that is my own idiosyncrasy. Anyone who buys this set will still be able to enjoy the vigor and humor of these works, well projected by Il Rossignolo. And considering that Giovanni apparently had a non-tortured, successful trajectory, and his writing is mostly cheerful and unworried, the more straightforward approach music might well be the best.


In short, the three CDs give a very good panorama of a repertoire that is rarely played. Visual presentation is also good, and the liner texts (respectively by Mariarosa Pollastri, Maria Giovanna Fiorentio, and flutist Marica Testi) are informative. As has happened before with Brilliant releases, I miss having more information about the musicians involved and mainly about the instruments played. Otherwise, this is definitely recommended!
