Notes & Reviews:

Sammartini was considered to be one of the most talented composers of his generation. John Hawkins wrote in 1776: "His singularities can only be ascribed to that boldness and self-possession which are ever the concomitants of genius." He ranked Sammartini's concertos and overtures at the same level as those of Arcangelo Corelli and Francesco Geminiani, and even held them in higher esteem than Georg Frideric Handel's. Yet through an inexplicable twist of history, Sammartini has remained largely unknown to the general public. To remedy this, Les Muffatti have made a careful selection from among the plethora of Sammartini's masterworks in order to fully reflect their quality.
