World Premiere recording of the Six Sonatas for harpsichord with violin accompaniment of Cirri. Ignazio Cirri was maestro di cappella from 1759 at the Cathedral of Santa Croce, now the Duomo in Forlì. In that same year he was granted entrance to the Philharmonic Academy in Bologna. It is not certain whether his teachers included Giovanni Battista Martini who was only five years older. It is however known that the two were in friendly relations, that Martini became a member of the Philharmonic Academy in 1758, that Martini possessed, amongst his portraits of gentlemen of merit, also one of Cirri (the painting, anonymous, is today conserved in the Sala Bossi of the Conservatory “G. B. Martini” in Bologna) and that, lastly, a compositional affinity is evident in both their works. In 1780, for reasons of health and advancement of age, he was assigned the assistance of his already famous younger brother Giovanni Battista in the role of coadjutant. His works, besides numerous manuscripts, include the twelve Sonatas for Organ and Six Sonatas for harpsichord with violin accompaniment, that have never been recorded until now. Many of his compositions however remain unpublished and are currently conserved at the Archivio Capitolare of the Forlì Duomo. The style of the organ sonatas presents a certain harmonic and contrapuntal skill that distinguishes them from the contemporary Italian artistic style, such that the scholar Luigi Torchi defined it as a transition between Bach and Clementi.

Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) had ongetwijfeld een grote invloed op de Engelse muziek van de 20e eeuw. Vooral zijn bescheidener zangrepertoire is fascinerend. Deze opname is gewijd aan de renaissance van het Engelse lied en bevat drie van Britten's Canticles en een selectie van zijn beste « realisaties » (of « arrangementen ») van liederen van Henry Purcell (1659-1695). De Canticles zijn...
