There is always poetry as well as virtuosity coursing through Enrico Gatti’s violin playing, and nowhere more so than when he turns to Italian early Baroque music, as here in 'Mille consigli' with his Ensemble Aurora.

The album title reflects the multiplicity of emotional ideas and colours possible in violin music from this time (Gatti’s earlier recordings of similar music have recently been re-released by Glossa as 'L’arte del violino in Italia').

Amongst Baroque stylistic practices beginning to flourish at the time, the basso continuo was gaining increasing importance and Fabio Ciofini provides an exemplary lesson here in accompanying on the restored 1647 Luca Neri organ in the church of San Nicolò in Collescipoli.
