Partite e Sonate
Seungyon-Lee Lee (violone)
Today it seems natural that the cello stands in the foreground as a solo instrument – in the late seventeenth century it was quite different and although the cello was similar in design to the version we have today, the idea was completely new to use it not only as a continuo instrument. The earliest cello sonatas in the form familiar to us today date from the late seventeenth century and in this new and unique recording Bassorum Vox play rarely recorded pieces from this period and showing how the cello developed into a solo instrument.

La Voce del Violoncello
Elinor Frey (baroque cello), Esteban la Rotta (theorbo & baroque guitar) & Susie Napper (baroque cello)
This fascinating release represents the excitement that musicians must have felt when the musical form of the time was going through a period of exploration and discovery as performers began to write idiomatic solos for their instrument and the cello was finding its voice. The recording follows the genre over approximately 75 years, from the mid seventeeth century to the death of the Neapolitan virtuoso Francesco Supriani in
1757, by which time the cello had spread throughout Europe, producing star performers with international careers.
