I Solisti Ambrosiani


Bigaglia, Diogenio

Vioin Sonatas (12), op.1


I Solisti Ambrosiani


Diogenio Bigaglia, a composer who at present is unknown to most people, was active in Venice in the first half of the eighteenth century, so he was a contemporary of the much better known Tomaso Albinoni, Alessandro and Benedetto Marcello, and, above all, Antonio Vivaldi, whose work shows several evident – and more or less explicit – references to Bigaglia’s production. So he turns out to be a composer who is worthy of interest not only for the intrinsic musical worth of his works, but also for the influence his activity may have had on musicians with whom we are more familiar; this is why musicologists have recently started showing an increasing interest in him. This recording presents a complete performance of the 12 Sonate a Violino Solo o Sia Flauto e Violoncello o Basso Continuo Opera prima del Signor Bigaglia Padre Benedettino, as this work is called in the title page of the edition published in Amsterdam by Michel Charles Le Cène around 1722. Davide Belosio (solo violin) interprets this world-premiere recording accompanied by I Solisti Ambrosiani, already protagonists of a previous release dedicated to the rediscovery of the Venetian composer (Diogenio Bigaglia, Cantate per soprano e continuo, Tactus, TC670203).
