Composer and cellist Domenico Gabrielli was born in Bologna on 15 April 1659. He only lived to be 31 and he is a composer probably only familiar to cellists, or rather Baroque cellists. His seven Ricercari for cello solo are indeed the first predecessors of Bach’s cello Suites, and his two cello sonatas and his Canon for two cellos are among the earliest examples of their genre.

Much less well-known is the fact that Gabrielli was also a celebrated opera and oratorio composer, and published several trio sonatas and (posthumously) a volume of secular cantatas for voice and basso continuo. The present release is completed by some works by Bartolomeo Monari (1662-1707).

Emanuela Galli's ravishing voice leads us through these lesser known Baroque compositions, revealing the beauty of the music.
