Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Trio Settecento, the "superlative Chicago-based early music ensemble" (Gramophone), presents Italian Baroque composer Francesco Maria Veracini's monumental Opus 2 Sonate Accademiche for violin and continuo. It's a cosmopolitan collection of 12 sonatas of breathtaking scope and pan-European influences - a set of sonatas unlike any other of the era. One of the greatest violin virtuosos of his era who loved entertaining and dazzling audiences with his pyrotechnical playing, Veracini's Sonate Accedemiche is both homage to his fellow-countryman Arcangelo Corelli and an original masterpiece in its own right. Billboard chart-topping violinist Rachel Barton Pine, "one of the rare mainstream performers with a total grasp of Baroque style and embellishment" (Fanfare) is joined by her colleagues in Trio Settecento, cellist John Mark Rozendaal and harpsichordist David Schrader. Trio Settecento has cultivated fans across North America through appearances at prestigious concert series, festivals, and venues, which frequently include the music of Veracini.

Altogether, both of these issues are quite unusual and there is so much variety in the music itself that I am glad to get both interpretations of it. That is one interesting aspect of baroque music. What with the improvisation of ornaments and the less precise attitude towards articulation, the performer gets to imbue it with his own personality to a greater extent than later music. In both of these recordings, personality is the point and is expressed with warmth and vigor. The recordings are both excellent in sound, the Cedille a bit sharper, the Hyperion smoother. Your choice!

Reviews

Adventuresome Baroque
Francesco Maria Veracini, along with his contemporaries Giuseppe Tartini and Pietro Locatelli, continually pushed to expand the technical abilities of the violin. The 1743 Sonate Accademiche (sonatas for Violin and Continuo, Op. 2) require quite a lot from the violinist.

The Trio Settecento understands that, and delivers performances full of fire and energy. Violinist Rachel Barton Pine plays the blistering solo passages with a bit of attitude, which makes these works sparkle. Cellist John Mark Rozendaal and harpsichordist David Schroder are equal partners with Barton. As an ensemble, the Trio Settecento performs in a lively give-and-take that at times seems more like a jam session than a classical performance.

Which is pretty much how these works would have been performed, originally, I think. Of the twelve sonatas in this release, for me the real standout was Sonata No. 10, which features a traditional Scottish tune. Veracini spent a considerable amount of time in London, which is probably where he became acquainted with the tune (it also appears in John Gay's Beggar's Opera).

Highly recommended.
