Notes & Reviews:

Carlo Tessarini da Rimini is one of the "forgotten generation" of Italian Baroque masters who made their name and sometimes their fortune outside their native land. Tessarini was popular in England and the Netherlands, where both the public and publishers rated him on a par with Vivaldi and Albinoni. The Op.12 set on this disc were dedicated to the powerful Cardinale Annibale Albani of Urbino, the eldest son of Pope Clement XI. After a long period as leader of the opera orchestra at the Teatro Valle in Rome, he managed (with his generous family helping out - they owned a publishing company!) to enter into a type of co-publishing deal with a leading French publisher who distributed and sold his music.

"Given that Veracini was roughly contemporary with Vivaldi and Bach (a few years younger), it's striking how little he sounds like either of them. Where their music -- even Vivaldi's -- is formal and balanced, Veracini's, even when he doesn't have the display element of a solo violin part to rely on, is animated by a spirit of free fantasy. If he takes a shine to what rock musicians would call a lick, he repeats it for a few bars. If he wants a shock effect, he works up the end of a phrase in a strange way and ends on a dissonant chord... This remains a good place to start with Veracini's music, which will bring smiles and even a laugh from time to time." -All Music Guide
