Notes and Editorial Reviews

Even though the astonishing Capriccio stravagante with all of its imitations of instruments and animals is well known to all lovers of baroque music, the other works by this virtuoso violinist are almost completely unknown. Born in Mantua, Farina was in the service of the court in Dresden. The Capriccio is the only example of such a work in the five volumes of music that he published in the 1620s, his remaining works consisting of polyphonic dances in the French style and of brilliant sonatas for violin; his practice of the violin was very personal in music being composed at that time. This collection of works by Farina is a source not only of astonishment and wonder but also of tenderness as well as other emotions.
