Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rossini's Six String Sonatas, scored for two violins, cello and double bass, date from 1804, and were all composed in three days - the composer was just 12 years old! They display an astounding precociousness, and a sound grasp of the music of Haydn and Mozart. Formed in 1952, I Musici became one of the leading European chamber ensembles, specializing in the music of the Italian Baroque, but later embracing Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, and contemporary music.

"I Musici give their usual polished performances ... beautifully eloquent playing the artists give the more serious movements ... the performances can be safely recommended, and the recording does not fail to pay sufficient respect to the tone and agility of the double bass." - Gramophone
