Graziani, C: Sonatas (6) for Violoncello and Basso Continuo, Op. 3


Armoniosa: Stefano Cerrato (solo cello), Marco Demaria (violoncello di continuo), Michel Barchi (harpsichord)

Carlo Graziani, born in the Italian city of Asti c1710 was one of the earliest cello virtuosos. Well-travelled, he played in London with the 7-year-old Mozart in 1764 and left many sets of sonatas and several concertos for his instrument. He retired from the Prussian court in 1773, to be succeeded by Jean-Pierre Duport, but he continued to work for Friedrich Wilhelm II on a very generous pension. His sonatas provide a fascinating example of his artistry and ability: rapid passage work, double-stopping and extensive use of the upper register. They also illustrate the composer's view on the melodic capabilities of the instrument. The Six Sonatas Op.3 were dedicated to Friedrich Wilhelm II, who must have been an exceptionally gifted pupil.

Armoniosa, also from Asti, deliver elegant, polished and affectionate performances of these sonatas by one of the key figures in the instrument's development.
