Seicento: The Virtuoso Early Italian Violin

Small size, four gut strings, a short bow were at beginning the ingredients of the magic. Such magic happened in Italy, the cradle of the violin, during the seventeenth century. “Seicento!” is therefore a multifaceted time-travel through the Early Baroque, from Venice to Sicily, exploring the wonders of the first violin virtuosos and their dexterous-passionated playing. A collection of music...

Tartini - Nardini : Arco Magno/ Marie Rouquié

On tackling the works of Giuseppe Tartini, a player immediately notices an inconsistency: Tartini was a major personality of his period, a virtuoso violinist, a prolific composer, an excellent teacher – and his music is hardly ever performed today. He was called maestro delle nazioni, for he trained the great violinists of the Classical period from throughout Europe; he also left behind an...

TRIO'S

Just like most German composers of his time, Telemann was very well acquainted with the stylistic developments in the other European countries, Italy and France in particular, and in his own compositions he assimilated the various national styles: the Lully Ouverture, the stylized French dances and the Italian trio sonata and concerto. Telemann’s contribution to these forms and genres was...

Vivaldi. Concerti Particolari

Some of these pieces, however, are particularly exceptional for various reasons, especially considering the artistic environment in early 18th century Venice. This recording presents Vivaldi’s most brilliant and at the same time bizarre works from this genre. These compositional experiments are...

Ysaÿe. Six sonates

When Eugène Ysaÿe composed his cycle of 6 sonatas op. 27 for solo violin in June 1923, gut strings were still very common and highly appreciated - statements by contemporary violinists such as Mischa Elman, Toscha Seidel and Jacques Thibaud confirm this. However, neither the dedicatees of Eugène Ysaÿe’s solo sonatas nor other contemporaries made recordings of these works. Martin Reimann has now...
