Notes & Reviews:

Angelo Berardi (Sant'Agata Feltria, Urbino, 1636 - Rome, 1694) was a pupil of Giovan Vincenzo Sarti and Marco Scacchi, of the Roman school. Committed supporter of the Seconda Prattica, Berardi maintained that modern music had reached "greater perfection compared to the past" and that the practice of music was more important than theory. Berardi was a prolific writer and a very able contrapuntist whose value was, already at that time, extensively recognized, perhaps also because of the careful balance that allowed him to praise the genius of Arcangelo Corelli while maintaining an excellent relationship with the Bolognese Giovanni Paolo Colonna during the years of the famous diatribe between those two. In terms of his stylistic profile, Berardi shows fantasy and richness of inspiration, so much so that his only work assigned to the violin, and dedicated to Sister Anna Maria Francesca Rossi, Augustinian nun from Viterbo (the Sinfonie a Violino Solo, Book I, Op. 7, Bologna, Giacomo Monti 1670), seems to cover the entirety of the instrument's abilities and expressive variety.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Longa captures the surprising, even rather shocking, contours of this music beautifully in the way he exaggerates dissonances, shifts of tone color, and dynamics. And Clemente is a constant partner, the way she emphasizes and encourages this drama in music. Notes are in English.
