Notes and Editorial Reviews

The main theme of this work of the Ensemble Chiaroscuro follows closely that of the first release: the proposal is to collect a series of pieces to form a sort of concert program, in order to tell a true story in music, hence the title “Cello Tales”. The listener will in fact be led, through the notes of cellist Antonio Fantinuoli, on a journey of rediscovery of the great masters and pioneers of the cello, unearthed by a careful research of ancient manuscripts done by the artist himself. From Giovanni Battista Degli Antonii and Giovanni Battista Vitali, to Domenico Gabrielli and Francesco Alborea, passing through Giovanni Battista Somis and Luigi Boccherini, up to Joseph Clemens dall’Abaco, all the most significant compositions that Read more punctuate the technical evolution of the instrument are included. Antonio is joined for this release by theorbo players Giangiacomo Pinardi and Craig Marchitelli, and fellow cellist Perikli Pite. Read less
