Partitas (6) for solo mandolin


Davide Rebuffa (mandolin)

This world premiere recording presents the historic mandolin, offered by the rediscovery and performance of specialist Davide Rebuffa. On two original eighteenth-century instruments Rebuffa brings to light the Six Partitas for solo mandolin by Filippo Sauli. Unfortunately we do not have much information about the life of the composer of Florentine origin, but we know that he was hired in Vienna at the Hapsburg court in the early eighteenth century when he probably composed this music that, as compared to the seventeenth-century manuscripts (whose content consists of simple dances, not yet in extended musical forms such as Suites or Sonatas), mark an important change in the nature of the mandolin repertoire of the Baroque period.
