Notes and Editorial Reviews

Baroque composer and violinist Giuseppe Tartini took up the violin after fleeing persecution by Cardinal Giorgio Cornaro. While seeking refuge at the monastery of St. Francis in Assisi, he heard Francesco Maria Veracini’s playing. After hearing such virtuosic talent, he fled to Ancona and locked himself away to practice, emerging an extraordinary violinist. Tartini’s Sonatas show the intimacy of the composer’s abilities, while the Concertos broadcast the musician’s big artistic personality. The works brilliantly complement one another on this release. For more than twenty years, violinist Crtomir Siskovic has dedicated himself to Baroque music. He performs with a violin and bow from the era, and has recorded multiple albums of Tartini’s Read more music. Read less
