Maurice Steger: Venezia 1625

MP3 file

Early Baroque and birth of the "Stravaganze". Swiss Maurice Steger, "the world's leading recorder virtuoso", and his ensemble put much emphasis on the instrumental music of Venetia's golden age from the 16-17th century. The city then was a hotbed for avantgarde music, which eventually allowed the soloists to stretch beyond the former limitations of sentiment and virtuosity. "Venezia 1625" unites compositions - "sonate concertante in stile moderno" - by Dario Castello, Salomone Rossi, Tarquinio Merula, Marco Uccellini, Bernardo Storace, Alessandro Piccinini and Giovanni Battista Fontana.
