About

Carlo Tessarini received his musical tuition in Venice, probably with Vivaldi and Corelli (whose musical heir he clearly is). He became a famous virtuoso on the violin, travelling Europe like a modern day pop star. He died in Amsterdam, leaving a substantial oeuvre mainly written for his own instrument.

His violin sonatas are firmly rooted in the baroque tradition, but already pointing towards the ‘galante style’ of the late 18th century, with an emphasis on belcanto melodies and clear and transparent structures.

Valerio Losito is an eminent violinist and musicologist who has already recorded a Scarlatti programme (BC94242) and a superb recital for viola d’amore solo (BC94367) for Brilliant Classics.
