About

Why Francesco Geminiani is not mentioned these days alongside other great masters of the era of Baroque music is a bit of a mystery. Together with Corelli and Handel he was one of the composers who made a great career for himself in eighteenth-century Great Britain. Concerto Köln has not forgotten him, on the contrary: the ensemble pays homage to him as one of the true greats. And now the musicians have chosen their favourite pieces from his entire oeuvre and called it Geminiani’s Quintessence.

Concerto Köln has chosen works from all categories of his work for this project, with bassoonist Lorenzo Alpert taking a leading role in selecting those rare works “which we think are the loveliest and most accomplished of his compositions”.

The fact that Geminiani left a host of teaching manuals about playing technique and interpretation was decisive for the ensemble’s interpretation of the works. “These rich sources of information made it possible for us to employ some surprising and unusual stylistic elements in our readings of his Concerti Grossi,” explains Alpert. “They are what led to his special and very personal ‘Quinta Essentia’” which will be available on CD and double vinyl.
