Notes and Editorial Reviews
This unorthodox debut recording from two Croatian sisters, which couples cello and organ, includes repertoire that is famous but seldom recorded.
Antonio Vivaldi (1678 1741) is a household name as a composer of accessible and pleasing concertos for all sorts of solo instruments. And Vivaldis chamber music? Vivaldi wrote concertos and sonatas mainly for the all-girl pupils in the Ospedale della Pietà in his home city of Venice, an institution he had been associated with since 1703. Recorded here are the Sonatas in A minor RV 43, E minor RV 40, and B-flat major RV 46. The performing musicians replaced the two Allegro movements of the A minor Sonata with the two of the Sonata in A minor RV 44, preserved in two of the
manuscripts. Read less
