Notes & Reviews:

Even though the astonishing Capriccio Stravagante, with all of its imitations of instruments and animals, is well known to all lovers of baroque music, the other works by this virtuoso violinist are almost completely unknown. Born in Mantua, Farina was in the service of the court in Dresden. The Capriccio is the only example of such a work in the five volumes of music that he published in the 1620s. His remaining works consist of polyphonic dances in the French style and brilliant sonatas for violin. This collection of works by Farina is a source not only of astonishment and wonder, but also of tenderness.
