About

Twelve years younger than Bach and Handel, Giovanni Benedetto Platti left us a collection of nine 'Concerti per il cembalo obligato' which rank not only among the very early examples of composition for keyboard instrument and strings, but which are also the first specimens especially conceived for the fortepiano, the new instrument invented by Bartolomeo Cristofori.

Luca Guglielmi, the brilliant soloist and regular keyboard player with Zefiro, offers us - for the first time on period instruments - three brilliant and forward-looking piano concertos, interspersed with the large-scale Piano Sonata in C minor, and the baroque Sonata for oboe, with a special appearance by Paolo Grazzi.
