Francesco Barsanti (1690-1772): Sonatas (6) for recorder & basso continuo, Op. 1 / Christoph Ehrsam, recorder; Eunice Brandao, viola da gamba; Attilio Cremonesi, harpsichord

Notes & Reviews:

Francesco Barsanti (c. 1690-1772) worked for a number of years in London; he moved thence to Edinburgh - where he lived for some thirty years - before returning to the British capital. His first published opus, Sonate a flauto solo con basso, form the contents of this Glossa release, originally recorded in Italy in 1993 by the members of the trio ensemble Arcadia. These early Baroque-era basso continuo works are replete with expressive features: acciaccature, mordents, broken chords, rhythmic and free arpeggios, imitation, diminution, ornamented bass and the all-important rubato.
