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

He had learned to play the violin as a child and knew its characteristics perfectly well.

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

This recording presents Vivaldi’s most brilliant and at the same time bizarre works from this genre. These compositional experiments are...
