Tartini - Nardini : Arco Magno/ Marie Rouquié
Concerto en Sonates van Tartini en Nardini door Marie Rouquié, barokviool
Tartini was a major personality of his period, a virtuoso violinist, a prolific composer, an excellent teacher. His main objective was singularly clear: to train, to master and summon as often as possible the small something that moves the listener on hearing music; the moment we can hear another thousand times, and which will have the same effect on us each time. Tartini termed this la verità di natura, the truth of Nature. One of the objectives of this recording is to present several well-chosen examples of an essential performance practice: what Tartini himself termed cantabilità strumentale, the art of ornamenting slow movements.
