ArtistsGunar Letzbor (violin)
Ars Antiqua Austria
Corelli played for a few years in the orchestra directed by Lonati, as its concertmaster. One can only marvel at the fact that the virtuoso didnít publish his collection of 12 Sonatas before the year 1701, possibly motivated by the success of Corelliís own violin sonatas (1701). At this point in time however, Lonatiís compositions were already a few years old and had been copied a number of times. Had he published his works at the time of their creation, his success would have been distinctly greater. These masterpieces were dedicated to the Emperor, Leopold I.
Lonatiís virtuosity comes close to that of Biber whose works Ars Antiqua Austria have also championed. The power of expression in his music is surprising, although he cannot disavow the sunny origins of his Italian soul.
