BACH sonatas for violin and basso continuo
Johann Sebastian Bach: Sonatas for Violin and Basso continuo. Mayumi Hirasaki, violin - Lorenzo Ghielmi, harpsichord - Anna Camporini, cello
Sebastian Bach composed many works for violin (besides the pieces for organ and harpsichord, the two instruments he mainly played). He had learned to play the violin as a child and knew its characteristics perfectly well. Unfortunately, the manuscripts of many of his compositions were lost after his death: the three sonatas for violin and basso continuo BWV 1021, 1023 and 1024 are today a small remnant of what is thought to be a much larger production. In addition to these sonatas, the CD is completed by harpsichord transcriptions of some movements from the solo sonatas for violin, which may have been adapted by Bach himself, and by a trio sonata originally written for violin, flute and basso continuo in a version for violin and harpsichord obbligato.

In 1959, two composers wrote nonets: Nino Rota’s melodic Nonetto, on which he would continue to work for almost 20 years, and Bohuslav Martinů’s farewell chamber music piece, a nonet, which he composed as a last piece to satisfy his longing for his homeland. Eisler did not compose his nonet in his native country either, but arrived in Mexico in 1941 as a refugee from the Nazis. There he wrote...
