Notes & Reviews:
Gaetano Pugnani's trios, duets and sonatas were fought over by publishers in London, Paris and Amsterdam, largely because he experimented with what were then considered cutting-edge compositional devices and forms. In his trios and sonatas for two violins, the expressive nature of the proceedings and Pugnani's obvsiouly serious approach ensured he did not treat his chamber works as throwaway background music for polite society gatherings and that he never indulged in fatuous elegance.
