Two particularly spectacular personalities of the Baroque
period, which was not short of exciting figures:
Antonio Veracini, violin virtuoso, teacher and composer
in Florence. Although he was a highly respected
musician and teacher in his own time, only few of his
works have survived. His nephew Francesco Maria, to
whom he taught violin and composition, was a completely
different type. Hotheaded, eccentric, ingenious
– as he was described by his contemporaries. This
character is reflected today in his works, which attest
to an extraordinary freedom from conventions. On
this CD the soloist Rüdiger Lotter finds a celebrity
partner in the recorder player Dorothee Oberlinger.
The Continuo part very well cast also promises an
adventurous listening experience through the contrasting
soundscapes of the Veracinis.
