Notes and Editorial Reviews

After a visit to Telemann-land (CD1185) Dan Laurin goes to Italy! On the present disc he performs recorder sonatas by Corelli and his Italian contemporaries together with Parnassus Avenue, a San Francsico-based group. The Parnassus Avenue ensemble grew out of a common performance philosophy which combines a scholarly understanding of the period in which the works were written with a conviction that 'there is no early music, only a never-ending now' and that a meaningful performance is 'of the instant' and cannpt be preprared in total detail.l The musicians have to trust each other and listen to each other, for all music has an improvisatory dimension to it. (And it is this improvisatory dimension, which is often missing, in recorded Read more performances - and reasons why so many CDs are perfectly played but awfully dull.) Lovely sonorities, sparkling performances and, as you would expect, excellent sound. And if anyone has heard a better sense of ensemble than that between Dan Laurin and Hanneke van Proosdij in Sammartini's 'Sonata for 2 recorders', please let us know! This disc is irresistible.
