Federico Guglielmo (violin)


The 12 Fantasias for violin solo by Georg Philipp Telemann are masterpieces in their genre, and should be as famous as the Sonatas and Partitas by his contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach.

Not only are these works a testimony of Telemannís great melodic gift, but the violin writing is idiomatic and demanding, using advanced violin techniques (Telemann was a self-taught violinist himself). The sonatas contain several movements, and are a synthesis between the melodious Italian School style of Corelli, and the polyphonic German style (several sonatas end with a fugue).

Few violinists have better credentials for performing this music than Italian maestro Federico Guglielmo, leader of the early music ensemble 'LíArte dellíArco' and a celebrated violinist himself, with an impressive discography to his name.
