After calling it ‘a wonderful album in all respects’, the magazine Diapason concluded its review of Suite Case: Violin Duos from Vivaldi to Sollima (A448) with the question, ‘When can we look forward to the second volume?’ In this new project, the violin of Stefano Barneschi gives way to the cello of Giovanni Sollima, the multi-talented musician from Palermo featured here not only as a composer. On this new journey, again beginning with Antonio Vivaldi, Giovanni Sollima and Chiara Zanisi travel between early and modern music, between classical and folk (the Old Scots Tunes of Francesco Barsanti), with two previously unrecorded gems by the Roman composer Giovanni Battista Costanzi. The entire recording is punctuated by tracks taken from Suite Case, a cycle composed especially by Sollima for this project.

This recording has been inspired by the charity work of Chiara Zanisi who inspires young offenders by working with them on rehabilitation vessel “Lady Louise” and this recording is named after the play by Ibsen The Lady from the Sea.
