Notes & Reviews:

Although Francesco Veracini was known as a capo pazzo, as a hothead or madcap with whom it was not exactly easy to remain on friendly terms, he numbered among the star violinists and popular composers of his time. He learned to play the violin from his uncle Antonio Veracini, with whom he frequently and very successfully concertized. The rare violin concerto, two sonatas, and two overtures for orchestra on this recording serve to illustrate the complex versatility of the composer Veracini, who lived and worked not only in Italy but also in Dresden and London.

Gramophone Magazine
... Veracini's music... gets persuasive treatment here by an Italian ensemble I have found rather raw in the past but who now play with stronger focus and a darkly resonant but well balanced sound. Leading from the front, violinist-director Federico Guglielmo finds brightness and energy in these pieces, and skips through the virtuoso challenges laid out for him without apparent strain.
