Giovanni Battista Sammartini is considered the first great symphony composer of the European musical history. Nine of his symphonies are presented here, as part of an extensive project to release the entire repertoire of Sammartiniís symphonic writing.

The disc features rare recordings of Overtura in F Major Jc 33, Sonata in A Major Jc 65 and Overtura in F Major Jc 36.

Giovanni Battista Sammartini delighted in experimenting with new solutions in the form of the symphony, at that time still not well defined, and undoubtedly offered a decisive contribution to determining its scoring and contents as well as to the identification and treatment of individual timbres.

Roberto Gini is a specialist in Sammartiniís symphonies and, along with the Orchestra da Camera Milano Classica, he has made it his mission to record the composerís entire symphonic oeuvre for Dynamic.

Recorded at Palazzina Liberty, Milano, 12th-15th January 2005.
