WorksSonate a tre (10), op.1
ArtistsEl Arte Mvsico
The three sets of trio sonatas published as Antonio Veracini’s Opp. 1‐3 have been excerpted by El Arte Mvsico on this album. Op.1 (1692) is a collection of sonate da chiesa in the style of Corelli, whereas the works of Op.2, dating from two years later, are composed in the newly fashionable style of sonata da camera, in which the first movement is a free prelude that calls for interpretation to recreate the vibrant flourishes of Corelli's style. There is much technically challenging moto perpetuo writing in this collection, such as the Veloce of Sonata no.8, and notably French-inflected movements, such as the delicate Largo affettuoso of Sonata no.1.
Op.2 would go on to serve as a reference for composers including Francesco Maria Veracini, Giuseppe Tartini and Pietro Locatelli. Dating from 1696, the Op.3 collection returns to the sonata da chiesa form, but experiments with more unusual keys and more florid expression. The fast movements are complex and masterful, and the slow movements offer us some of the most beautiful, exquisite and refined melodies of the era, such as the third movements of Sonatas no.7 and no.8.
El Arte Mvsico is a Madrid‐based ensemble comprising four musicians who specialise in Baroque music: violinists Angel Sampedro and Teresa Casanova violin, cellist Isabel Gómez‐Serranillos and keyboard‐player Diego Fernández. Founded in 2003, their previous recordings include trio sonatas by Caldara and Erlebach.
