Geminiani: Cello Sonatas Op 5 / ter Linden, et al

Album Summary

>Geminiani, Francesco : Sonatas (6) for Cello and Basso Continuo, Op. 5
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Italian composer and violinist Francesco Geminiani wrote just six sonatas for cello but they deserve far more attention then they have been paid today. Geminiani’s only set of six sonatas for cello and basso continuo is one of the finest from the Baroque era. When writing his cello sonatas he also drew on the French viola da gamba tradition. He combined this with his own style which was based on Corelli. Geminiani also inserted a lot of embellishments and contrapuntal passages.
