Today it seems natural that the cello stands in the foreground as a solo instrument, but in the late 17th century it was quite different and although the cello was similar in design to the version we have today, the idea was completely new to not use it only as a continuo instrument.

The earliest cello sonatas in the form familiar to us today date from the late 17th century. In this new and unique recording, Bassorum Vox play rarely recorded pieces from this period and show how the cello developed into a solo instrument.
