Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Venetian musician and composer Antonio Caldara (1670-1736), unlike some of his contemporaries who today are quite famous but experienced little fame during their lifetimes, enjoyed enormous success, then faded inexplicably from music history. Alongside a vast production of vocal music, his only significant instrumental works are two trio sonata collections published during his youth, as well as these "sonate a violoncello solo col basso", composed in 1735, a year before his passing.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Antonio Caldara (1670-1736) was one of the earliest well-known Venetian composers. He may have studied with Legrenzi and was known primarily for his vocal works. He was a cellist and one of the first Venetians to write trio sonatas. Their formal structure resembles Corelli. Most are in four movements. The trio sonatas differ from the cello sonatas in many ways. They are early works written by 1699 and are mostly in four movements, a prelude followed by dances, in an imaginative but relatively conservative musical style. Speaking of the cello sonatas. There is a recording of six of them on Newton 8802118 (July/Aug 2014). It is played by Marco Dalass with organ, lute, and violone; and not one of them is duplicated on the present release. Altogether, the Tactus album is well worth your investigation.
