Notes and Editorial Reviews

At the start of the 1990s the Perugian violinist Enrico Gatti made a number of important recordings chronicling the development of the Italian violin schools across the later 17th century, as composerviolinists (such as Pandolfi Mealli, Cazzati, Uccellini, Vitali and Torelli and many more) developed new musical forms and techniques designed to show off the instrument and its capabilities. Glossa is very happy to be bringing back into circulation now two of those releases focusing on a golden age for Italian instrumental music, signed by the production team of Sigrid Lee and Roberto Meo, and led by Gatti demonstrating his special qualities as a musician: a deep understanding of the repertory and the transformational capacities of the Baroque Read more in music allied to an expressive, subtle yet virtuosic style of playing. Gatti’s refined approach to the interpretation of violin music remains a refreshing antidote to other more “high velocity” styles; this pair of recordings, entitled L’Arte del Violino in Italia, provides a rich anticipation for Gatti’s later recordings for Glossa of sonatas by Antonio Vivaldi.

Taking part in this captivating exploration are members of Gatti’s long-standing Ensemble Aurora, which here include marvellous players such as harpsichordist Guido Morini and harpist Mara Galassi. With this new release, which continues to breathe fresh life into 17th century repertoire for the violin, come two notable complementing essays on the subject written by Marc Vanscheeuwijck and Gatti himself.
